Flowers Gallery is delighted to announce a solo exhibition by London-based artist Victoria Cantons. Alongside film and text-based works, this exhibition features a thematic cycle of large paintings that track the artist’s own transgender history, to reflect on issues of identity and what it means to be a woman.

Working from a personal archive of photographs made over a period of more than a decade in the years before, during, and after intensive facial surgery, Cantons’ paintings present a record of trauma and healing, alongside a rigorous inquiry into the social constraints surrounding gender politics.
