Brixton based artist Venetia Berry (b. 1993) paints the nude female figure through an abstracted lens, simplifying the form using pure line. She aims to reverse the male gaze, challenging the archetypical sexualised female nude. Berry studied painting at the Leith School of Art, Edinburgh (2012-2014) and at the Royal Drawing School, London on the Drawing Intensive Year (2015-2016). Her most recent exhibitions include Glamour Beauty Festival, Saatchi Gallery, London (2019); Partnership Editions, ‘How She Looks’, Benk and Bo, London (2019) and ‘Stretch Marks’, Solo Exhibition at Noho Studios, London (2018).
