Aqua Regalia – Chapter Two is a continuation of Faith47’s successful 2014 London exhibition, named after a highly corrosive mixture of nitric and hydrochloric acid that has the ability to dissolve gold.

About

Faith47 explores the dichotomy between the sacred and the mundane by enveloping viewers in a space with figurative paintings, as well as intricacies from everyday life in shrine-like artworks. 

Through this pairing Faith47 celebrates the commonplace as holy in an attempt to disarm strategies of global realpolitik and advance the expression of personal truth. In this way her work is both an internal and spiritual release that speaks to the complexities of the human condition, its deviant histories and existential search.

In Aqua Regalia – Chapter Two, multidisciplinary works created with ink, graphite and oil paint are complemented with mixed media collages that utilise articles the artist has collected in various countries.

Findings include international currency, torn pages from books and magazines, signage, vintage film and photographs, playing cards and government records. Atop this expendable paraphernalia are her representational depictions of incarnated divinity, animals, sacred geometry and text.

By associating such imagery with rejected materials a narrative is drawn. A question posed: can projected meaning compel us to reconsider an object as indivisibly connected to our experience and understanding?
