AMERICAN ARTIST’S LIFE-SIZE PAINTINGS OF FEMALE COWBOYS OFFER A FEMINIST VIEW OF THE WILD WEST

Leeds College of Art kicks off a new year of exhibitions with a selection of works by American artist Felice House; featuring paintings of famous western actors such as Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, Gary Cooper and James Dean, reimagined as female cowboys.

Re/Western features seven large-scale portraits taken from iconic scenes from the western genre, but with the leading characters repainted as women. By projecting contemporary women into these heroic roles, House asks us to take a critical view of gender stereotypes and the access of women to power.

In collaboration with Corridor8 magazine [http://corridor8.co.uk/], the exhibition will also feature a micro-residency by Elspeth Mitchell (PhD candidate, University of Leeds) who will develop an accompanying text alongside the artist and curators.

Re/Western: Felice House is curated by Sharon Bainbridge with Joanna Craddock and Catriona McAra.

At Blenheim Walk Gallery
