Ted Coney's Family Portraits
Guided tours given by the artist around the house and his work must be booked in advance - see website for more details www.tedconeysfamilyportraits.co.uk The paintings, made over the last fifty years have their starting point in family life and are not portraits in the convential sense. Objects and installations (also on display) are often used in the paintings to be displayed as symbols and given new meanings within the pictures.
Although the collection can be viewed as a whole, about seven paintings are picked out for discussion on this hour long tour. .
