Known for her figurative style focusing on the relationship between nature and culture, the French-born US-based artist’s first exhibition in Greater China features paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and her first film. This film is a Surrealist narrative that incorporates props the artist sculpted herself. New works feature motifs of birds, insects, and tropical plants – largely due to the artist relocating her studio to Florida. The works are reminiscent of the garden of Eden and Paradise, with humorous takes on temptation, gender, and sexuality. Finally, the exhibition also sees the debut of a new edition made by traditional Japanese woodblock painting.
The artist is versed in mediums of painting, sculpture, and gouache on paper, among others. Furthermore, she works to expose and rewrite female archetypes in her surrealist sense of the uncanny. Through her works, audiences are able to explore the juxtapositions between humour and darkness, the uncanny and mundane, and between grotesque shapes and vivid colours.
