A painting of faces in a crowd. In the centre is the face and shoulders of a girl with shoulder length brown hair, wearing a blue jumper. Small red horns poke out through her hair. Most of her face and some of her hair is obscured by lighter coloured geometric shapes in blues, greens, purples and white. Only the eye on the right is visible. To the right is another girl with long brown hair, her face is tilted right and only half is visible on the painting. She is smiling and wearing a strappy top. Between them, in the background, the face of another person is partially visible. To the far left is the face of a boy wearing sunglasses, a blue cap and a shirt with a dark top beneath it.

Hello!

ONCA has an exciting exhibition coming soon.

Artist Jaye Ho has made a new series of paintings called ‘The Vanishing Act’ which explores war crimes and in particular women who were subject to sexual violence in Japanese occupied countries during World World 2.

Jaye Ho paints victims and their remains, survivors and perpetrators.

She censors/protects/condemns these images with a mask of prisms, geometric shapes or pixels.

As well as being an artist Jaye Ho also works for the UK Foreign Office on human rights.

The paintings will be available to view online on ONCA’s website www.onca.org.uk between 6th October & 22nd November.

Some of the paintings will also be on display in ONCA’s gallery window and viewable from the street outside.

The exhibition will be in two parts, changing half way through so that different paintings will be displayed in the window, but all of the works will be online.

There will also be a video tour on the website which will have In Vision interpretation.

On Saturday 7th November at 2pm there will be an online ‘Meet the Artist’ event which will be BSL interpreted.

Tickets are free and can be booked on the ONCA website.
