Fox Galleries presents ‘The Female Gaze’ by Esther Erlich, celebrated for over three decades for her distinctive portraits. The solo show will feature paintings on canvas and works on paper, providing a rare opportunity for viewers to compare her approach to the two mediums.

Dynamic variances in colour, saturation and line will reveal Erlich’s virtuosic methods for creating sensual and alluring figures. Evocative of Jeanne Mammen, Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt, the energy and gaze of Erlich’s subjects are palpable. Demanding attention, these mostly female figures seem to look at us as closely as we look at them.

Exhibition opens: 5–7pm, Saturday 23 June 2018
Exhibition closes: 14 July 2018
