Emma Bennett & others @ Saatchi Gallery

14 July 2023 - 28 August 2023

Beyond the Gaze – Reclaiming the Landscape, demonstrates the increasing interest in landscape painting within contemporary art. Historically, the genre was predominantly the domain of male painters. When women were present, they appeared as subjects within landscapes, often as workers, mythical figures, muses or nudes.

In contrast, this exhibition subverts the traditional tendencies of historical landscape painting and concentrates on contemporary women artists who work with full agency to define the worldview from their own perspective. From miniature to monumental painting, each artist approaches the subject distinctively, and in combination explores landscape as an arena for human endeavour; nature as memento mori; the imaginary; the ritualistic; and the archaic.

Featured artists include: Emma Bennett, Kiera Bennett, Kirsty Harris, Dannielle Hodson, Lisa Ivory, Melissa Kime, Joanna Whittle.
