Michael Werner Gallery, London is pleased to present ride or fly, an exhibition of new paintings by Florian Krewer.
The figures in Krewer’s paintings couple and live out their desires in artificial landscapes or night scenes. They commune with birds and wild animals who inhabit their spaces, bodies and minds. Krewer’s urban fantasies are rooted in personal experience and filtered through the artist’s imagination. Starting from photographs and memory, Krewer strips away the details of character, place and time to reveal the tension, vulnerability and sensuality of life in the city.
