For his London Show Wiley has painted Dalston's women, inspired by Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s feminist text, The Yellow Wallpaper (1892), a book that explores the treatment of women through an autobiographical lens. Gilman also has a connection to the William Morris Gallery. In 1896 she met and befriended William Morris' daughter, May Morris at an International Socialist Conference in London.
This promises to be a powerful exhibition, exploring the power of London's modern women. Watch this space for more information nearer the time.
