Francesca Facciola: One Trick Pony

29 Oct 2021–27 Nov 2021
PV 28 Oct 2021, 6-8pm

Overview

Carl Kostyál London is proud to present Francesca Facciola's first solo show in London. The exhibition is comprised of four oil on canvas and three installation works. 

New York-based Francesca Facciola (b. 1994, Staten Island, NY) creates dreamy compositions that knit together psychedelic themes, sense of humour and an obsessive attention to detail in a pictorial stream of consciousness.

“My paintings can be really personal. They are my memories, and we are all built on memories. So I try and make these paintings, of these stories, in a way that a mind might create a dream. I think everyone at one point has shared a dream with someone else. I like to think of my paintings as that: me sharing my fabricated memory story with the viewer in hopes that they form a connection with it.” Francesca Facciola, 2020.
