A solo exhibition of new paintings by Noga Shatz


A new body of work exploring the representation of the female figure in painting through a contemporary perspective. Noga Shatz re-examines famous women models, depicted by famous painters throughout the history of art, tracing their stories and bringing them to the front of the canvas, focusing on the fragmentation of the female figure. The works reclaim ‘known’ narratives in history and offer new interpretations to represent a layered female identity. 

Noga Shatz is a London based multidisciplinary artist specializing in painting and printmaking. She obtained her MFA degree with distinction from the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London, and her BA from HaMidrasha – Faculty of the Arts, Israel. She has been exhibiting her work in solo and group exhibitions in England, Israel and Germany.

Shatz has been awarded the Anthony Dawson Print Award, the Slade Printmaking Scholarship, the Slade Summer School Residency Award, the Slade Annual Group Project Award, Max Werner Drawing Prize (nomination), Neo Gallery Print Project Award, Highly Commended Artist at Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize, Rabinovich Foundation for the Arts Exhibition Grant, the Art Council England (ACE) Grant, and The Foundation For Future London Grant award in 2021 and 2022.

The exhibition is accompanied by a number of FREE events. Each workshop will be dedicated to key artworks within the show. We invite you to dive with us into the world of witches, saints, and monsters. Check out our website for details. Booking essential for numbers – please email the gallery.
