"Amanda Hext takes a unique approach to the depiction of women. Suspended in dark ambiguous spaces these nude figures stare out at us as if daring the viewer to enter into their world. The subjects seem confined by the frame, the sense of strength in their presence as palpable as their gaze is challenging."
