Maisie Broadhead at University of Brighton Gallery, 7-23 November 2014 by ben mcleavy

Maisie Broadhead: Broadhead Women, University Brighton, November 2014

Maisie Broadhead: Broadhead Women, University Brighton, November 2014

The exhibition by Maisie Broadhead at the University of Brighton Gallery features her recent series of photographs entitled Broadhead’s Women; a collection of studies portraying three generations of women from the artist’s immediate family. Broadhead’s Women reinterprets the recognisable compositional styles of two historical painters – Johannes Vermeer and Vilhelm Hammershøi – and highlights their similar obsession of repeating the narrative of women situated within quiet domestic interiors. By using the visual format of these iconic artists, while making subtle changes, Broadhead offers intimate and timeless portraits of femininity. The artist graduated with a BA Honours in Wood, Metal, Ceramics and Plastics from University of Brighton in 2002. The exhibition was organised to coincide with the artist’s latest commission, Peepers, currently on show at the Royal Pavilion Brighton until 1 March 2015.
