Somaya Critchlow: Paintings documents over four years of exhibited and unexhibited paintings with an interpretive essay by art historian Amanda Renshaw. Somaya Critchlow’s work delves into a fascination with self-perception and othering, suffixing the tradition of figuration with a considered examination of nudity and atmosphere. The paintings collected here compose a narrative that sets women at the centre of image-making, their gazes interrupting our latent desire for an unconditional viewing, the objects of their world made anew with eerie significance.
