The Event

About Threesome

THREESOME is a collaborative exhibition by three women painters, in association with critic and invited curator Anna McNay, exploring the female gaze. Sadie Lee, Roxana Halls and Sarah Jane Moon are figurative artists, each with a distinctive and unique style, whose queer identities inform much of their work. These painters engage with the theme of sexuality in singular and compelling ways and offer arresting interpretations of the ‘female gaze’.

 

For this show they have, for the first time, painted portraits of one another, alongside a new self-portrait. In addition to these three works by each artist, they have each painted a fourth work, a portrait of Ursula Martinez. Differing notions of queer identity are explored here and this group invites aesthetic as well as ideological scrutiny. These gay women make bold, alluring, witty and deft works, which seek to foreground the idea of the female gaze and explore how they look at each other and themselves. The show’s title, ‘Threesome’, makes a coolly sardonic reference to the voyeuristic aspect of lesbian representation: any eroticism in these works is strictly intentional.

 

This exhibition follows on from the ground-breaking exhibition of Queer British Art held between April and October 2017 at Tate Britain. The cut-off date for inclusion in that show was 1967, this exhibition seeks to look at the female gaze now in 2017-18 and to address how these histories thrive in the contemporary art of today.
