About

Spanning over twenty years, work from throughout her career will be on display, featuring a cast of characters that are both alluring and unsettling.

The exhibition also includes over forty of her watercolours and drawings which present a world of masquerades, disguises and role reversals. Paloma Varga Weisz’s starting point for this poetic and narrative work is often her own life experiences, yet it also reflects wider themes of identity, societal ‘norms’ and historical stereotyping.

Growing up in Germany, her artist father was a major influence on her future artistic career. She was classically trained, learning woodcarving and modelling in Bavaria, before studying in Düsseldorf, where she lives and works today.
