About

Lou Rivers, Alicia Lowe and Gitana Vaicyte are a collaboration of artists demonstrating the exploration of the female identity through various medias of art, including paintings, drawings and prints. The “Fresh Face” exhibition aims to question what it means to be a woman, whether we are the stereotypes, who society wants us to be; or if our identities are never fixed and forever changing. As female artists, we have all found ourselves the victims of discrimination from time to time, often causing unpleasant emotions, which we all try to make explicit within our artwork. Marrying properties of both figurative and abstract painting together, we create our own fresh face of portraiture. To do this we have all taken influences from old masters such as Rembrandt, Goya, Cezanne and Van Gogh, to more contemporary painters, such as, Francis Bacon, David Hockney, Lucien Freud and most importantly taking inspiration from female artists as Mary Cassatt, Jenny Savile, Marlene Dumas and Georgia O’Keeffe. Drawing inspiration from works of different centuries and genders, has made it possible for us to create art in a new and exciting way, which is showcased through this exhibition.
