New Work - Painting

Maya Weishof - Headless

Kupfer is pleased to introduce artist Maya Weishof, who is currently undertaking a residency at Kupfer in collaboration with Galeria Millan, Brazil.

Maya Weishof’s practice is interested in expanding figurative visual possibilities in painting. She conceives of images through fragments, distortions, caricatures and hybrid creatures, often revealing bodies and landscapes that begin and end in one another.

Drawing is at the core of Weishof’s work. Through her drawing she builds memories, myths and scenes that are in dialogue with images in art history, but also, with the history of images themselves. Her work seeks to escape linear ideas of narrative, and exalts the figurative being infinite and ever-morphing, capable of a multitude of meanings.
