“My universe is very colourful, chaotic, loud, punchy, rock n’ roll and slightly punk,” revealed photographer Diana Gomez in an interview with contemporary multimedia platform 1883; and the Venezuelan native, who for the past 16 years has called London home, has this month brought her celebrated brand of hedonism to the carefree island of Ibiza.
Taking over the grounds of the award winning Pikes Hotel, one of Ibiza’s favorite outposts that today, still retains the authentic, Balearic spirit of the island, FREE WOMEN is an exhibition of Diana Gomez’s powerful portraits. Representing an ode to freedom of expression and being comfortable in one’s own skin, the event is also being staged in support of Teenage Cancer Trust.
The photographer’s sometimes-arresting images, depicting tales of wild nights, blurry mornings and brief encounters, have been scattered across the hotel’s sprawling landscape. A curated combination of life-size portraits and outdoor installations, the feminist-driven and semi-autobiographical show, inspired by Diana's charismatic, colorful and passionate world, embraces the female form, empowerment and liberty.
Limited edition copies of some of the key portraits on display will be available to buy, and 20% of each sale will be donated to Teenage Cancer Trust, which is a UK-based charity that provides world-class cancer care and support in specialist units, hospitals and in homes.
FREE WOMEN will run at Pikes Hotel until 30th September.
