Anke Weyer, Entrueckte Ebene (2020). Oil and acrylic on canvas, 182.88 × 226.06 cm. Courtesy the artist and Canada, New York.
Anke Weyer's exhibition Heart, Heart is currently showing at Canada in New York alongside an OVR until 27 February.
Weyer's large-scale abstract paintings explode with energy and luscious colour. Her thickly applied, loose brushstrokes trace the gestural movements of her body, immediately connecting the viewer to the performance of painting.
Heart, Heart is in reference to the organs' kinetic motion which is channelled through Weyer's rhythmic process. This is the sixth solo exhibition at the gallery for the Brooklyn-based German artist, having been represented by Canada since 2000.
