Beverley Onyangunga + - Women in the Void: Abstract Expressionism on Paper
Women in the Void: Abstract Expressionism on Paper - The first fourbythree recipient, Beverley Onyangunga, uses archival photographs and sculpture to look at the systemic brutalities which occurred in 1890 Free State Congo during the reign of the Belgian King, Leopold II. The artist uses the motif of the red hand as a symbolic reference to the mutilation of the native people, whose limbs were removed if they did not meet rubber harvesting quotas.
Beverley Onyangunga - Huxley-Parlour are delighted to present works on paper by eight pioneering women working in abstraction between 1945 - 1970: Mary Abbott, Dusti Bongé, Jay DeFeo, Perle Fine, Elaine De Kooning, Anne Ryan, Alma Thomas, and Michael West.
