Time Out says

For the past two and half years, George Shaw has enjoyed one of the best gigs in art as artist-in-residence at the National Gallery. This is our opportunity to see how the artist, a Coventry lad who studied at the RCA in the 1990s, has been inspired by the collection. Shaw's paintings often depict the council estate of his childhood, or nature on the fringes of the urban world, so how the mythological and religious imagery of the NG has filtered into and fired his imagination should prove fascinating to behold.
