NEW YORK / HONG KONG / LONDON – SEPTEMBER 7, 2021 – Phillips is pleased to present a unique multi-artist virtual exhibition, Sweet Jane in the fields of daisies, dedicated to an exciting group of female artists from diverse cultures whose works serve as a visual commentary on 21st century society. Carefully curated by Joan Tucker, the exhibition features 19 artists and will be live 7 September – September 28 to Phillips.com.
The inspiration for the intriguing track comes from the iconic Velvet Underground song, Sweet Jeanne, and a work by poet and artist John Giorno. The spark to combine the two in a unique metaphorical title, Sweet Jane in the fields of daisies, came after listening to artist Lucia Love talk about her works and practice in a live interview. Love constructs striking portraits and scenes from a symbolic world of ambiguity and humor. These scenes are coded with political symbolism and feminist ethics to touch on our current reality. Lucia Love’s painting, Gigantic, pictured above, will be featured in the exhibition.
The 19 works in the exhibition explore themes such as personal experience, identity, gender and cultural histories. The idea behind Lucia Love job Gigantic was to portray an effortless strength linked to collective potential, and also to explore how that value is falsely linked to idealized masculinity, regardless of the perpetrator. Artist Hiejin Yoo is inspired by daily observations recorded in his journal. Worldly events become large semi-figurative oil paintings on canvas. Abstract color schemes and richly layered markings evoke the subjectivity of a woman’s complex inner life. Her paintings give shape and form to the full range of her personal emotions, acting as diaries and meditations on self-discovery. A key figure in the Spanish feminist art scene, ngeles Agrela portraits of women are characterized by cascading masses of hair that often obscure the subject’s face. Raising issues of beauty, artifice and effacement, they are a distinctly feminine representation of the feminine in contemporary society. Technicolor braids in bright blue, pink or reddish tones are braided into “veils”, recalling the symbolic meaning of hair for women in many cultures. Ania hobson isn’t afraid to capture the details of contemporary British life, never shying away from the reality of the people and places she sees around her, right down to the yellow lacing of a pair of Doc Marten boots. Laid-back and direct, her work is marked with the signs of the times, articulating a post-modern vibe through her skillful and personal translation of classic oil painting techniques. Her ode to millennial femininity, ‘A portrait of two female painters’ won him the prestigious Young Artist Award at the National Portrait Gallery in London in 2018.
