Croydon-based contemporary artist SimOne will host her highly anticipated debut solo exhibition: Woman Enough, at The Loft, Croydon Arts Store from Thursday 19th September to Saturday 21st September 2019.
SimOne is renowned for her dynamic use of colour, striking palettes and original colour combinations. This exhibition brings her latest collection of all-female figurative paintings together to form the largest display of the artist’s work to date, including never before seen pieces.
A series of dominant and vibrant colour portraits will headline the show; the bold paintings exemplify the Woman Enough concept by rejecting the need to complicate or do more to be enough.
SimOne's vision for the exhibition is to inspire self-love and empowerment. Though the message is relevant for all, Woman Enough hones in on the female experience, with a play on the phrase ‘Are you man enough?’ reframed as a statement of “enoughness” with no question, for anyone who identifies as a woman.
An interactive mirror mural installation will complete the exhibition, with visitors invited to scribe empowering ‘notes to self’ on the mirror to promote positive self-image and internal dialogue through the power of words.
The Private View and launch party, from 5pm-8pm on Thursday 19th September will showcase the work against a backdrop of soulful music and include a breakout space for people to express their own creativity, inspired by the concept.
*PRIVATE VIEW: Thursday 19th September, 5pm-9pm
*Friday 20th, 11am – 5pm
*Saturday, final view closing event 21st, 11am – 5pm
