Faith Wilding at Art Basel OVR: Miami Beach Miami Beach, 04 December 2020
Faith Wilding's eco-feminist art practice was born out of her MFA at the California Institute of the Arts, from where she established herself as a forerunner of the feminist art movement of Los Angeles in the 1960s.
The artist's bold colours and intricate biomorphic line drawings explore the female form and the natural world.
In Hildegard and I, showing with Anat Ebgi at Art Basel OVR: Miami Beach, suggestions of the life cycle include a figure in the foetal position, encased in a cell, surrounded by creatures that appear half animal, half human.
