France-Lise McGurn @ Simon Lee Gallery
20 April 2023 - 25 May 2023
Hostess, is an exhibition of paintings by France-Lise McGurn, which showcases a new body of work featuring a large central triptych, new wall piece and a painted sofa suite.
Working on linen, McGurn allows this base textile to shift the tone and mood of these new paintings. The exhibition title refers to the politics and power dynamics inherent in hosting, both socially and within the science of the body. The feminised term ‘hostess’ points to the recurring female form as a motif and abstract glyphic psychological reiteration in McGurn’s work.
