About the artist

Celia Hempton’s small paintings explore the nature of pornography and intimate images in the internet age. Her painterly, cropped images of genitalia, whether covered by a hand or brazenly splayed out on a bed, always raise questions beyond the obvious.

Hempton is represented by Southard Reid, London; Galleria Lorcan O’Neill, Rome; and Galerie Sultana, Paris.

Studio Voltaire has been supporting artists for over twenty years, through our renowned programme of exhibitions, performances, events and education projects as well as providing affordable studios.

We have gained a reputation for championing both emerging and underrepresented artistic practices, often at key stage in the artist’s career. These have included Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Phyllida Barlow, Ruth Ewan, Elizabeth Price, Jo Spence, Joanne Tatham & Tom O’Sullivan, Richard Slee and Cathy Wilkes.

The gallery also provides an important UK platform for international artists, often providing them their first-ever presentation in the UK. These have included Nairy Baghramian, Thea Djordjadze, Nicole Eisenman, Judith Hopf, Paulina Olowska and Henrik Olesen.
