Final June, Saatchi Yates in London introduced the gorgeous exhibition of Swiss-born, New York Primarily based artist Angela Santana. The exhibition brings collectively Angela’s physique of labor starting from 2015-2022, seen collectively for the very first time! An empowering reinterpretation of the male gaze, Angela Santana turns her consideration to the web and embraces it as her modern-day muse.
With a observe rooted within the rejection of the classical, and conservative, Santana disrupts conventional approaches to portray by deconstructing digital media into a whole bunch of layers and reimagining them via her large-scale oil canvases. Working with the mass of illicit pictures on-line, the artist observes the traditionally male oriented consumerism and depiction of feminine our bodies, radically reorienting these age-old tropes although her personal lens. Santana’s approach reimagines how we would current, witness, and digest the feminine nude, from a feminine lens present throughout the realm of the digital age.
On her approach, and uncooked subject material, Santana states: “By shifting the item to change into the brand new topic, I spotlight how, all through historical past, pictures of girls have been typically passive and pleasing”. Santana creates this very shift in her new exhibition by bringing us into an area of protected feminine erotic illustration, that vastly contrasts passivity, and meekness. Her figures refuse to be contained, slightly they take up area of their unabashed stature, flux, colour and vary.
Author Whitney Mallet, notes on Angela ‘s daring subject material: “Beguiling of their opacity, there’s an attract to the eerie sense of calm and a provocation made by their defiant refusal to be consumed as meant. However greater than something, these artworks perform as a reclamation of female eroticism for an period of system error”.
