Bella Hoare: A Different Green – Preview

A Different Green is the first solo exhibition from emerging artist Bella Hoare taking place from 22nd May – 2nd June at The Oxo Tower on London’s South Bank.

The exhibition focuses on over 20 works that explore the beauty of the female form alongside closely observed natural references to forests, leaves and flowers. Successive layers of paint build a final images as well as the visible history of that image’s construction while Hoare’s optimism shines through in a celebration of feminine beauty and power.

Plant life and the natural world are constant touchpoints. Hoare’s series of “green goddess” paintings offer a feminist take on the “green man” figure of medieval Pagan-Christian folklore and can be seen as a reminder of the possibilities of human and, more specifically, feminine intimacy with the natural world.
