LAURA KNIGHT AND CAROLINE WALKER: A FEMALE GAZE
19 March - 5 June 2022
A Female Gaze brings together the work of two celebrated artists; Dame Laura Knight R.A (1877 -1970) and Scottish contemporary artist, Caroline Walker (b. 1982). Born over a century apart, both artists share a focus on the lived experiences of women, in domestic settings to the workplace, painting their varying subjects through an inquisitorial lens.
In bringing these two artists together in a new exhibition, A Female Gaze, looks at the developments by women artists over the past 100 years, but also considers the themes shared by both artists and examines why the female figure and the role women serve in society is still such a strong and rich subject matter.
Over 80 of Dame Laura Knight R.A'S paintings and drawings made during the twentieth century offer contrast and comparison to Walker's oil paintings which reveal the diverse social, cultural and economic experiences of women living in contemporary society.
