Two artists share their distinctly female gaze in a duo of solo shows at Hillsborough's Cupola Gallery. Their uncompromising, affecting paintings highlight personal, private, social, political and domestic stories.
Wild: Women & Nature by Lyn Hodnett
The common thread in Lyn Hodnett's striking portraits of women is her fascination in myth, legend and stories. Her latest series of work explores identity and connection to the land and home. It includes paintings over postcards, salvaged wood, wallpapers and other textured and collaged surfaces, both hiding and revealing histories (or herstories).
Veiled by Sally Roberts
Sally Roberts's portraits of women incorporate familiar aspects of the artistic tradition and bring them into tension with her uncompromising, female gaze. She combines modern props and costuming with hazy, dreamlike backgrounds. Her figures are in spaces in flux – not a solid world – and Sally weaves clues into her paintings for viewers to decipher.
Friday 10 June, 7:30–9:30pm – all welcome, hospitality provided.
