Melitta Nemeth

Nemeth explores the female gaze in painting.  While reinventing the depiction of woman she investigates the ideas of beauty, power, body-positivity, otherness and displacement.

 

Her paintings create a female dominated universe hidden from the patriarchal gaze. The imagined and psychological scenes in her works are inspired by childhood experiences, European painting and found imagery. She explores how women look at women and what the male gaze cannot see.

The use of inverse light effects, layered brushstrokes and limited colour palette make her paintings distinctive.
