Highgate Cemetery is the inspiration for thirteen artists, all trained in portraiture, who bring their own personal interpretations to paintings of some of those who are buried there. In doing so they discover the richness and diversity of their worlds and examine their legacies.

The Group explore scenarios in which different centuries come together, presenting those with contradictory and complementary attitudes. They investigate attitudes to sexual mores, the environment, different cultures, the individual, and even the Cemetery itself.

With a wealth of artistic talent drawn from around the world, all of whom have very different cultural approaches to death and commemoration, Life after Life is a unique look at mortality, the march of time and the inevitability of our demise, from a unique Highgate Cemetery perspective.
