The practice of Andro Wekua explores the concept of memory as a lens through which to recall, distill and reinterpret personal or collective histories. Regularly moving between figuration and abstraction, the Georgian artist creates multilayered paintings composed of fragments of remembrance and figments of the imagination that display various formal layers. Monika Sprüth and Philomene Magers are pleased to announce a solo exhibition of Wekua’s latest body of work. Containing traces of the artist’s hand continuously applying and removing richly pigmented colors, his paintings present as palimpsests that conjure images and associations but defy straightforward interpretation.
