Viewing Arrival at Tiwani Contemporary

Dive into the vibrant world of Miranda Forrester’s art. She’s flipping the script on how Black womxn are portrayed in painting, giving a nod to queer Black feminism. Imagine this: she meticulously stretches plastic, applies paint on finely primed canvases—bringing her subjects to life, transcending the canvas with a pulse of movement and breath.

Her artistic alchemy involves layered transparency, peeling back the intricate layers of womanhood and challenging the conventional male gaze. For Forrester, the essence of her work lies in the celebration of feminine embodiment and the profound connections among women. It’s an immersive experience, a transformative journey into a realm you’ll find hard to depart from.
