'Sadie Lee' 2018 will be exhibited @dn_brixton this November as part of Queer Portraits. Click through for a photo of the underpainting & various shots of @sadieleeartist , @roxanahallsartist & I at Threesome the exhibition in both London with New Art Projects & in Liverpool with @duovision_arts. This portrait was made specifically for the show as we all painted ourselves & each other - in secret. The first we saw of the paintings was at the private view, which was a somewhat nerve wracking but simultaneously wonderful experience. Threesome comes with a catalogue with all the images, various texts & essays & is available online at sarahjanemoon.com (under 'paintings' & 'books'). The painting is also available as a print via my website under 'limited edition prints'. #queerportraits#threesome#portrait#escaped#contemporaryportrait#womenartists#lgbtart#queerart
