For The Launch of the project room at Viktor Wynd Fine Art Ltd, Silas Wynd, Chelsea Zaharczuk & Suzette Field are delighted to present new work by Vanessa Hodgkinson.
Torero/Torera is part of a larger body of works developed over the past year. It takes its starting point from the bullfighting traditions of Spain, moving backwards from the artist’s own experience of the corridas of Madrid to earlier anthropological symbols of the bull in Western and Eastern cultures. The work looks at the aspects of ritual, costume and gender as well as movement and physicality.
Vanessa Hodgkinson is an artist living and working in London. She studied History of Art at Cambridge University. She has held the position of Artist in Residence at Christ’s College, Cambridge, and more recently at Leighton House Museum in London.
