A series of new works by Cape Town-based artist Faith47 that continues her successful 2014 exhibition in London. Known for her street art painting murals on city walls around the world and her studio work using rescued objects, Faith47 creates shrine-like artworks that explores the intricacies of everyday life and the dichotomy between the sacred and the mundane by enveloping viewers in a space with figurative paintings.
In Aqua Regalia – Chapter Two, multidisciplinary works created with ink, graphite and oil paint are complimented with mixed media collages that utilize articles the artist has collected in various countries. Findings include international currency, torn pages from books and magazines, signage, vintage film and photographs, playing cards and government records. Atop this expendable paraphernalia are her representational depictions of incarnated divinity, animals, sacred geometry and text. By associating such imagery with rejected materials a narrative is drawn. – Jonathan LeVine GalleryOn view at Jonathan LeVine Gallery Nov 19–Dec 20.
