A debut solo exhibition by Sophie Macdonald

A dialogue in paintings exploring the contradictions of Muslim women who wear the veil and European women who pose naked.

Sophie Macdonald, a young artist who has spent all her life in North Kensington, has long been fascinated by the veiled Muslim women who are her neighbours. She has produced a remarkable series of portraits of hijab wearing women in lighthearted mood, skipping with ropes.

"I wanted to challenge my own prejudices" she says, "to open up a discussion about widely different attitudes to the female body."

She explores these contrasts by including a series of women posing naked or semi-naked, portraits painted on builders planks.
