Another Day in the Kingdom
SETAREH X is pleases to present the first solo exhibition with LA-based artist Frances Waite.
27.11.21–08.01.22
SETAREH X is pleased to present LA based artist Frances Waite with her first solo show in Germany Another Day in the Kingdom.
In a subversive approach Waite‘s detailed and almost photorealistic pencil and paper drawings confront the viewer with oftentimes very intimate scenes. While her previous pictures were overtly and directly sexually charged, her current body of work has a more personal character. The sense of sexuality is most often evoked by only one figure, or even the still lives that Waite weaves into the narrative. Waite’s eye for what is sexual is focused on the very mundane scenes we overlook – the tip of a knife, the folds of a pile of clothes, a dangling necklace. The privacy to which they allude is inviting, rendering a voyeur of its spectators.

Frances Waite's pencil and paper drawings confront the viewer with often very intimate scenes and voyeuristic perspectives. The detailed elaboration of the works slows down the view of the motifs, reminiscent of snapshots. The almost photorealistic impression is repeatedly broken up by certain irritations, surreal pictorial elements and deliberate over-drawings.
