Image of artwork titled "Sleeping Nightingale" by Faye Wei Wei

Faye Wei Wei, Sleeping Nightingale, 2023
Oil on canvas
20 × 16 inches

Interweaving references drawn from lived experience, literature, art history, and culture at-large, London-based artist Faye Wei Wei takes a lyrical approach to figuration, creating complex yet open-ended narratives each a world unto itself. Layering thin washes with gestural impasto marks, the artist implicates her own movements within her compositions, keeping drips and other artifacts of her process intact to further subvert and compress the divide between image, painting surface, and viewer.
