Event Details

Refinery29 and NARS Cosmetics are pleased to invite you to the opening of “Power Mouth” an exclusive, female-led art exhibition in celebration of NARS’ latest launch, Powermatte Lip Pigment.

The uniquely curated and forward thinking approach to beauty will originate from five emerging female artists curated by Refinery29 and NARS Founder and Creative Director, François Nars. With a mix of bold abstract art, audacious photography, captivating live installations, and vibrant portraitures, the thematic show will explore the ideas of power, strength, and self-expression.  

Featuring female artists;

Daantje Bons

Daantje’s work goes against the grain to defy feminine ideals; she uses medium of photography to create powerful, arresting images, which celebrate the female form. The images are playful, abstract and interactive. Through the use of humour and provocation, Daantje explores and confronts views of women, encouraging the opening-up of conversation to challenge everyday restraints by society.

Natalia Stuyk

London based Natalia Stuyk is a digital artist who creates mesmerizing graphic compositions bursting with colour. Through manipulation of images, she creates standout hypnotic visuals, which capture and engage her audience. Citing nature as her main source of inspiration, Natalia regularly visits Southern Spain’s Tropical Coast where the vibrant and intense colours provide endless ideas for new work.

Romily Alice

Romily Alice’s work focuses on contemporary feminism and it’s relation to the post-internet age. She questions modern society’s relationship with observation, gender hierarchies, pleasure and the female form. Romily’s conceptual installations are from her series ‘Neon Portraits’ a collection of work to celebrate the diversity of the female form, which began with anonymous women uploading nude ‘selfies’ through an online platform.

Shae DeTar

Splitting time between NYC & Los Angeles, Shae De Tar is a self-trained artist known for her hypnagogic, whimsy and dream-like art hand-painted photography, which provide a glimpse into a surreal utopia. Inspired by renaissance paintings, impressionism, post-impressionism, music and literature, Shae enhances her photographs with paint to colour-drench her images.

Vanessa Kisuule

Vanessa Kisuule is a writer, performer, burlesque artist and general empress of blag based in Bristol. She has won over ten slam titles including The Roundhouse Slam 2014, Hammer and Tongue National Slam 2014 and the Nuoryican Poetry Slam.
