Lisa Barnard Thatcher

Maggie

The pinched lips of eight cloned Margaret Thatchers smile unnaturally in unison, eyes fixed narrowly.

Although a Thatcher far from her 1970s heyday, her rigid, manic expression is unchanged. Each portrait is almost identical, her manner performative, her gaze unflinching. With only the smallest variations in pose or posture, together they form a strange serial portrait of the woman responsible for changing Britain forever, and rubbishing the society she perversely claimed no longer existed.
