Sarah Wiseman Gallery is proud to present the spring exhibition ‘Identities’ featuring the work of four prominent women painters Clare Bonnet, Toni Cogdell, Henrietta Dubrey and Veronica Wells.
In a diverse, exciting exhibition each of these artists explores a range of themes within figurative art; from personal histories to the influences of fashion and media. All four have a shared theme of seeking personal authenticity through their work, by exploring common and relatable experiences as artists and as women.

‘This exhibition didn’t start out as an exhibition of women’s art exclusively. We wanted an exhibition of contemporary figurative painting, and the four artists that came to mind just happen to be women.’

Sarah Wiseman, February 2017

It’s an undeniable fact that women’s issues are under the spotlight in recent months, so this exhibition is at a poignant moment in time. Throughout history, women’s artistic achievements have been far less well acknowledged than their male counterparts. However, with major solo exhibitions at Tate from artists like Marlene Dumas, Yayoi Kusama and Georgia O’Keefe; and at Modern Art Oxford, Jenny Saville, Barbara Kruger and currently Lubaina Himid, it seems that finally, women’s part of the story of art is taking its rightful place.

Clare Bonnet, whose painting ‘Scarlet Peace’ is shown here courtesy of the artist and Sarah Wiseman Gallery, is a Cornwall based artist who mixes figurative painting with abstract mark-making. This combination of techniques suggests a tension, perhaps suggestive of movement, that ‘something has happened or is about to happen’. The women in her paintings are very much a part of the creative process; she is inspired by her friends, drawing on shared female experience. Conversation between herself and her subjects is a vital starting point of each painting, giving a resonance and vibrancy.

Summer Exhibition at the Sarah Wiseman Gallery with new works by Clare Bonnet, Charlotte Cornish, Peter Kettle and Fletcher Prentice (9 Jul-27 Aug)

Thursday, July 7th, 2016

The Sarah Wiseman Gallery in Oxford presents a Summer Exhibition featuring new works by Clare Bonnet (one of whose works is shown here courtesy of the artist and Sarah Wiseman Gallery), Charlotte Cornish, Peter Kettle and Fletcher Prentice and running from 9 July to 27 August.

Emerging talent Clare Bonnet’s work was a huge success in our Jamaica Street Artists exhibition earlier this year and this time we will show four recent, large-scale oil paintings of semi-abstract female studies. Charlotte Cornish is back in the gallery with her distinctive abstract paintings in strong, vibrant colours. Continuing his exploration of the Welsh coast and countryside, landscape painter Peter Kettle will show a collection of recent paintings introducing a new development in his use of colour, some large-scale and others in a smaller format. Fletcher Prentice has created a new series of paintings focusing on bird and plant life in his delightful loose painting style; soft yet strong in colour and rich in detail.
