New Work - Painting

James Tuitt

James Tuitt’s new paintings celebrate various versions of black women in power. Black fashion models and their rise to prominence take centre stage, but the overall place of black women throughout the fashion industry and beyond is also questioned. Tuitt asks, “are black women essentially being used as a consumer-facing means to sell product”, seemingly answering our calls for diversity and inclusion? Or is the inclusion of black women as actual professionals being extended to higher, executive positions? Placements where they hold power and make the final call, occupy the core spaces; head offices and limited access areas, where ideas are shared, plans plotted, and decisions made?
