Girlhood, Memory and the Gaze - Exhibition by Juliet Henderson

Girlhood, Memory and the Gaze - Exhibition by Juliet Henderson

Girlhood, Memory and the Gaze is a new exhibition by Oxford based artist and educator Juliet Henderson showcasing a collection of thought-provoking oil paintings.

This new exhibition by Juliet Henderson will be on display in the #WindowGalleries along Friars Entry in Oxford, OX1 2BZ until Sunday 29th May, free and available to visit at any time. It showcases seven pieces of work exploring notions of femininity, the sexualised gaze and tender memories among other themes. Central to Henderson’s work is the notion of frozen moments, captured stills of inner and outer life experiences incarnated into the body and mind through trauma or nostalgia.

“In representing girlhood, memory and the gaze, the Window Galleries display also makes a broader statement on what memory means today and how we recall memory in everyday lives and practices. The act of painting is a journey from blank white canvas and an initial idea to final image. Memories of bright patterns on a dress, or a particular piece of furniture are joined together, as layer by layer, painting produces memory in a form that is not known until the painting is finished. Painting is presented as a way of entering and re-entering 'girlhood/womanhood/the feminine' as a never-ending source of memories. The girl is the agent of memory.”
