Florian Meisenberg - What does the smoke know of the fire?

Tue-Sat: 11-5pm

Kate MacGarry is delighted to announce Florian Meisenberg’s fourth solo exhibition at the gallery. The show presents a new group of small-scale paintings with ambiguous subjects.

Meisenberg uses pulverised marble as a material for the first time in these paintings. He covers semi-wet canvases with layers of the fine grey powder and gently sifts it off. Leftover protrusions adhere to the pigment, recalling fabric craft paint.

The subjects of the paintings are often folkloric. There’s a couple living under a buttocks-shaped hill, hoarding goods but unhappy. A king hacks a rival to pieces as birds feed on flying scraps of flesh.
