Click to enlargeFABIENNE VERDIER : THE VORTEX PAINTINGS
Apr 29 - Jun 27, 2020
In these large-scale paintings, seen for the first time at Waddington Custot, Verdier continues her exploration into the painting of sounds and music, in particular the visual representation of breathing techniques employed by sopranos performing Mozart’s arias. The Vortex Paintings are characterised by a single large, whirling helix, created with giant brushes and tools of the artist's own invention. For this series, the artist has newly adapted her studio environment to incorporate a mobile platform, which enables her to stand directly above the work to paint new, fluid expressions from the centre of the canvas.
 
Fabienne Verdier: The Vortex Paintings coincides with a solo presentation of Verdier’s work at Frieze New York (6–10 May 2020) on the Waddington Custot booth.
