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.

In June it is all about emerging artists at Oxford’s Sarah Wiseman Gallery

This month Oxford’s Sarah Wiseman Gallery is focusing on Emerging Artists, starting with two exciting young painters Kathryn Stevens & Veronica Wells.

Kathryn Stevens graduated last summer from Bath School of Art & Design. Over the last year she has successfully established her independent studio practice and taken part in a number of group shows in Bath and Cornwall where she is based. Her work explores the materiality of paint, how it works, moves and sits on the canvas. In order to exploit this to the maximum there is an inter-play on the canvas between the controlled and uncontrolled application of paint, setting up a negotiation between the methods on the surface of the painting. Click Here to see the full collection   

Veronica Wells graduated from Winchester College of Art in 2009. She has consistently worked during that time to refine her studio practice whilst exhibiting in group shows, art fairs and bringing up her young family. The gallery first exhibited Veronica’s work in 2011 and I had been aware of it since her degree show, there was something about her take on popular culture that appealed to me, a bold feminine point of view taking a critical look at an idealized way of life.  Click here to see the full collection
