Award-winning artist Rosemary Valadon’s latest exhibition, Wicked Women: An exhibition by Rosemary Valadon, features portraits of contemporary women inspired by the colourful, sexy and kitsch art of the pulp fiction era. Valadon’s paintings both embrace and subvert the genre’s stereotypes – sexist becomes sexy.
Each sitter chose a classic film poster or book cover featuring a female criminal and re-created the pose. Valadon then painted her own version of the original artwork, which she infused with the modern sitter’s personality. As well as portraits of notable actors, writers, lawyers and other professional women, such as author Tara Moss, Wicked Women will display associated drawings and photographs.
