PV 28 Oct 2021, 6-8pm


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.


Francesca Facciola (b. 1994) lives and works in New York. She holds a BFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York.

Facciola’s work has been included in several group exhibitions including ‘Women in Paris’, Galerie Hussenot, Paris (2021); Neue Sachlichkeit; Contemporary Fine Arts, Berlin (2021); ‘10’ PM/AM, London; ‘Stockholm Sessions’, Carl Kostyál, Stockholm (2021); Indefinite Present’, YK2 Group, New York (2021); Future Gallery, Berlin (2020); Kravets Wehby Gallery, New York (2020); Alyssa Davis Gallery, New York (2020); Paddle Court Gallery, New York (2019); Art + Method, New York; and Ortega y Gasset Projects, Brooklyn, among others. She had a solo show at Hesse Flatow Gallery, New York in 2020.

'One Trick Pony' will be Francesca's first solo show in Europe.
