Anya Roberts-Toney's exhibition of new paintings at Nationale draw on imagery of female bathers in otherworldly landscapes. The gallery explains the title painting's reference to a dark piece of history: "Float tests were forced on women accused of witchcraft in the late 1600s. If the woman being tested floated in water, she was found guilty of being a witch, and if she sank (often drowning), she was considered innocent. At the time the saying was: 'If she floats, she burns.' Roberts-Toney’s new body of work is both an acknowledgement of this sinister period of history, and also a reclamation of female power."
