Where: Gillian Jason Gallery
Now until 30th January 2023
Working to grow the presence and careers of women and non-binary artists since 1982, the Gillian Jason Gallery launched the first women-focused commercial gallery space in the UK on London's Great Titchfield Street.
For 2023, curator Jade Foster brings together five leading Black female artists: Alanis Forde, Miranda Forrester, Sahara Longe, Cece Philips and Emma Prempeh. At Peace seeks to act as a space in which each individual artist presents, talks about and references their work in their own way in their own terms.
Expect to see Alanis Forde’s expressionist approach which narrows in on Black female identity in an “idealsied ‘exoctic’ Caribbean space.” Miranda Forrester opts for figurative works which address the invisibility of womxn of colour thorough history. Sarah Longe’s work features vibrant colours and softened portraiture which looks to Old Masters and chooses to add Black bodies in place of the models who dominated this period in art history. Cece Phllip’s large scale oil paintings explore women's relationships with power and cultural inspirations from archival research. Whilst Emma Prempeh plays upon family heritage and memories, whilst also drawing upon the immediate and the future.
