Lady Skollie @ Tyburn Gallery

19 January 2017 - 4 March 2017

Lust Politics, is the title of Lady Skollie’s first exhibition at the gallery. Lady Skollie, aka Laura Windvogel, was born in Cape Town and currently lives and works in Johannesburg, South Africa. Using ink, watercolour and crayon, Lady Skollie creates playfully sexual paintings, filled with bright colours, symbolic fruit, and all the joy and darkness of the erotic. Her work is simultaneously bold and vulnerable, expressing the duality of human sexuality; she explains, “it’s the simplest and the most complicated thing of being human, and [it] reminds us that we are just animals. Sex, food and sleep are very primal”. In Lust Politics Lady Skollie presents new painterly works considering sex, gender roles, taboos, objectification, violence, power structures, greed and lust.
