A new online exhibition redefines the female gaze
Coinciding with International Women’s Day on Friday, art platform Partnership Editions is launching a new exhibition that sees four of their artists taking on the female nude. The medium is traditionally seen through the ‘male gaze’, but Fee Greening, Alexandria Coe, Hester Finch and Venetia Berry have created new original nudes from the female perspective.

THE FEMALE GAZE, How She Looks Exhibition
Titian’s portrayal of a voluptuous goddess in Venus Rising from the Sea is among the selection of female nudes, all painted by men, on display at the Royal Academy from March. Glorious as it is, the exhibition is a stark reminder of the dominance of the male gaze in portraiture. As a timely counterpoint, the online gallery Partnership Editions is launching a show to which women artists including Venetia Berry, Alexa Coe and Hester Finch have contributed their own bold depictions of the female figure. ‘There is an increasing appetite to see women in a new, non-objectified light,’ says Georgia Spray, the gallery’s founder.

The Home Page Guide To… Starting An Art Collection
If you’ve never bought anything more than a poster for your home, where should you begin with starting a collection? Start by getting your eye in before you buy. I love going to museums and galleries and buy postcards of all the things I love to keep as a memento, as well as saving things that I love on Instagram – whether artworks or pictures of people’s art collections or homes. Then have a look through and see what styles you are drawn to and start to think about how you can acquire those artworks or search for similar pieces.

Brains: Meet - Starting Out
I’ve seen first-hand how corporate the art world can be: It’s a circular market, all being set by those within it. There are many things, however small, that go on unregulated. However, my years inside and as part of it were a great training.
