Michael Andrews, The Lord Mayor's Reception, 1966-69
Andrews chose the subject of the reception for the first chancellor of the new University of East Anglia since 'all human life would be there, from Lord Lieutenant of the County to rude mechanics'. This collaged background with individual figures inserted and over-painted work derived from 'hundreds of photographs of groups grinning'. The artist was interested in the notion that the ego was not a thing but a concept, ideas related to the writings of RD Laing.
