In celebration of a new association with Fiona Smyth, the Robert Kananaj Gallery proudly begins to present some of the artist’s works created in the last ten years. The exhibited works include paintings and drawings from the series Bride of Gene 2002 and The Virtuous- Rise of the Matriarchy 2007. Smyth’s themes include examinations of the elastic resiliency of female identity and the idea of traumatic memory living in the tissue of the body. Her figurative paintings reveal violent and beautiful narratives about the conflict of the exterior corporeal world and internal truths of being female.
Artist Silvia Argiolas will also be exhibiting new works at this time in the gallery space.
