The female body
Neil Matterson
20th June – 8th July 2017
Exhibition launch: Saturday 24th July 2017 2-4pm

The female body has historically been a body under review, scrutinised and even “attacked” for its per-ceived imperfections thereby instilling the female body with a sense of personal insecurity and caution about exposure. The journey through life for a woman can be difficult when her body doesn’t mirror constructed perfection, sometimes forcing the seeking out of a detour from scrutiny and comment. The aim for some is for their bodies to go undetected. The aim of this exhibition is for the female body to be on display in a tribute to all its variations.
