Gisela McDavid @ Pilar Corrias, Savile Row

27 January 2022 - 26 February 2022

Gisela McDaniel’s paintings explode the expectations of art history. Her multi-disciplinary practice, notably the large-scale mixed media portraits of womxn and femmes of the Global Majority, is oriented around creating a dual sense of safety and empowerment, not only for the audience but primarily for her subjects.

McDaniel’s newest body of work and the focus of her exhibition, Manhaga Fu’una (Fu’una’s Daughters), is her most deliberate move in this direction. This series of paintings and accompanying soundscapes are specifically focused on diasporic Famaloa’an CHamoru (Chamorro women), the indigenous community from the Marianas Islands in the north-western Pacific, to which she has cultural links.
