Zoe Dougherty’s exhibition Virago! is a depiction of female rage through mark making techniques with paint, dominant and confrontational female figures, and motifs of blood. The women exhibited imply and exude aggressive intent or recovery from rageful outbursts, highlighted with vibrant, overwhelming colours. Blood and wounds envelop and frame the women to allow them to exist in their agony, persisting through anger and torment. Virago! is for the suppressed anger in women that longs to emerge.
