Discover the work of one of the UK's most emotive artists as Rozanne Hawksley: War and Memory is exhibited at the Queen's House, Greenwich.
Once a school for sailors, the Queen's House is a suitable setting for this exhibition, which explores the memorialisation of war and the impact of conflict.
Hawksley's art is displayed across four rooms, covering the moving themes of loss, trauma, mourning and memory. Acclaimed pieces on show include Seamstress and the Sea, Prisoner, and Pale Armistice.
There's also a chance to see the new installation: Full Fathom Five, which consists of a memorial with a First World War wreath made from sailor's silk, cap tallies, parts of the Union Jack and silk poppies from the 1920s.
The artist's poignant commemoration provides a chance to delve into the effects and echoes of warfare during the conflict.
