CURRENT EXHIBITION

Grace Weaver. O.K.

November 16, 2019 - February 09, 2020

Grace Weaver (*1989 in Vermont, USA) is part of a young generation of artists who in recent years have breathed new life into the tradition of figurative painting. Her large-format oil and acrylic paintings picture the most banal aspects of life in the 21st century, and in that way, serve as an updated take on genre painting for our current moment, and specifically for her generation.

In her new oil paintings, on view in her solo show O.K. at Kunstpalais, she develops her approach further by focusing on smaller groups of characters in more intimate settings, featuring couples and friends or portraits of individuals. Embraces, hugs, and the exchange of profound gazes become recurring, central motifs. Repeatedly, objects linked to the human body’s appearance and its posture gain center stage. For example a variety of shoes depicted in a new series of paintings seems to hint discreetly at their wearers' particular moods.
