Save Event: Festoni: Natura Morta - New paintings by Helen Wilks

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


An exhibition of Helen Wilks' new Festoni paintings and her first solo show in London for almost 18 years. The show is curated and installed by Natalia Zagorska-Thomas at Studio Ex Purgamento in Camden Town.


Helen Wilks has exhibited extensively, including Childhood Fragments at the Freud Museum, London, Punch y Judy at Latinarte, Madrid, The Inhabited Space at the Yale Center for British Art, Newhaven CT.

In this new work Wilks paints with sensual directness, often in series, tracing time and the changes it wreaks on picked flowers, fruits and seeds. Everything about the show, in this gallery which has been attracting rising attention over the last three years, speaks of intensity and compression: A small space, condensed texts and tiny paintings, none of which are much more than 30 cm in dimension.
