Faye Wei Wei | If you sat for long enough you could see a flower bloom

6 March - 16 May 2020

Opening: Thursday, 5 March 6.00pm


Galerie Kandlhofer is pleased to present new works by British artist Faye Wei Wei (*1994 London, UK).

Working on a large scale, Faye Wei Wei conceives of the painting process as an intimate choreography between actual and pictorial space. Often revolving around spiritual iconography and classical myth, love rituals and the theatricality of gender, her works sometimes suggest the themes of particular mythic narratives, and at other moments seem to depart into a more ambiguous, interior space of incongruity and uncertainty.

In 2016, on graduating from the Slade School of Fine Art, Faye Wei Wei was awarded the Cass Art Painting Prize for final-year students.
