Roxana Halls – Crime Spree

Roxana Halls is one of the UK’s most exciting artists. Using the traditional medium of oil paint, Halls confronts society’s expectations of women. In her new collection, ‘Crime Spree’, women take control of their lives in extraordinary ways. Whether brandishing weapons, leaving a crime scene or gathering for a night out, these women are full of defiance, laughing in the face of what they have done or are about to do.

Appearing 4th September – 2nd October 2021

Reuben Colley Fine Art, on Colmore Row, is delighted to showcase Roxana Halls’ ‘Crime Spree’ in Birmingham, to coincide with Birmingham Pride 2021. The artist will be showcasing 4th Sept through 2nd October 21, and appearing in the gallery on the Saturday & Sunday of Pride weekend, 24th & 25th September, as part of the weekends’ diverse celebrations. As a ‘queer’ feminist artist, Halls expresses in her work the principles for which the Pride movement also stands: resistance in the face of prejudice, and celebration of the right to be whoever you want to be.
“We are excited to be welcoming back Roxana Halls to Birmingham for the month of September with a personal appearance during the Pride celebration weekend.
In the year when Roxana was added to the National Gallery’s collection, this is an amazing opportunity to view this unique collection, and add a piece of this highly collectable artists work to your collection.
We look forward to welcoming you to ‘Crime Spree’ and showing you around this amazing collection of paintings and signed limited editions”

Roxana Halls has won many awards, including the Villiers David Prize, the Discerning Eye Founder’s Purchase Prize, the Derwent Special Prize and the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation. Her work is held in both public and private collections, including the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, and she has been selected for BP Portrait Award exhibitions and Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions. She works from a studio in a disused theatre in London. She has been exhibiting regularly at Reuben Colley Fine Art for the last few years.
“I’ve been reflecting on the prohibitions which are placed on women within society and the particular kind of opprobrium placed on women who misbehave. I want to paint what happens when they do”. Roxana Halls
