“Our exhibition, ”The Female Gaze on Love, Lust and Longing,” is a continuation of the gallery’s commitment to emphasize the work of female artists and feminist art as a genre. The Female Gaze has been a reoccurring theme of our exhibitions dating back to one of our first shows, “In The Raw: The Female Gaze on the Nude.” We are looking forward to premiering new works at the fair that engage this meaningful narrative.” – Indira Cesarine, The Untitled Space founder

Watercolor artist Fahren Feingold brings an ethereal state to her unique paintings depicting the female form. Her watercolors featuring bold feminine nudes reference imagery from early 20th century French erotica, 70s & 80s American vintage magazines, and today’s Internet girls. The Los Angeles native moved to New York at the age of seventeen to study at the Parsons School of Design. After earning her BFA between Parsons and Glasgow School of Art, she worked as a fashion designer for top brands including Ralph Lauren, Nicole Miller and J.Crew, among others. In 2016, her dreamy watercolors caught the eye of the legendary Nick Knight, who commissioned her to illustrate Paris Fashion Week for SHOWStudio. Between 2016 and 2017, her work has been featured in numerous international exhibitions including “Moving Kate” curated by Nick Knight at SHOWStudio in London and The Mass in Tokyo, Japan, “The Vulgar” at The Barbican in London curated by Judith Clark and Adam Phillips, “Red Hot Wicked” at Studio C Gallery in Los Angeles, as well as The Untitled Space group shows “UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN” “SECRET GARDEN” and “ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE” curated by Indira Cesarine and “LIFEFORCE” curated by Kelsey and Remy Bennett. Touted as “a trailblazing artist on a meteoric rise” by Vogue, her watercolors have steadily gained recognition from collectors and critics alike for their sensitive, dreamlike colors, graceful brush stokes and rendition of the female nude. Through her erotic depictions, Feingold gives new voices to women of the past and present while exploring larger notions of female constructs in today’s society. Her work was recently exhibited in ”EDEN” at Spring/Break Art Show 2019 and was featured at SCOPE Miami and AQUA Art Shows, 2018 as well as “(Hotel) XX” at Spring/Break Art Show 2018.
