British artist Damien Hirst’s private museum, the Newport Street Gallery, is featuring a curated selection of three of women artists in the latest show, entitled “True Colours: Helen Beard/Sadie Laska/Boo Saville,” and they’re calling him an “amazingly kind mentor.”

A highlight are the sexy paintings by Beard, who shows psychedelic portraits of makeout sessions and intimate embraces. “Sex in the media is full of shame right now, and it’s pretty much always from the perspective of the male gaze. So, we’re concentrating on men like Weinstein and their warped ideas about sex, the way it’s used, the power that men like that have had over women, and it ends up taking away from the beautiful thing that sex can be,” said Beard in an interview. “I would like to celebrate sex from my point of view. There’s no shame in that, a woman who is centering her work on that.”
