About the Artist

Miranda Forrester is a figurative painter from London. Forrester’s practice explores the queer black female gaze in painting in relation to the tradition of men painting womxn nude. Forrester’s work is concerned with addressing the invisibility of womxn of colour in the history of art and combating the fetishization of their bodies. Forrester has been investigating how her identity impacts the way in which she depicts her subjects, and how her paintings can re-articulate the language and history of life drawing through a queer black feminist desiring lens. In doing so, she can depict what the male gaze cannot see. Her work, altogether, is a celebration of womxn’s bodies, the joy in occupying feminine identities, and being in relation with one another. Miranda lives and works in London, UK.
