FULL PRESS RELEASE Michael Werner Gallery

Michael Werner Gallery, London is pleased to present ride or fly, an exhibition of new paintings by Florian Krewer.

The figures in Krewer’s paintings couple and live out their desires in artificial landscapes or night scenes. They commune with birds and wild animals who inhabit their spaces, bodies and minds. Krewer’s urban fantasies are rooted in personal experience and filtered through the artist’s imagination. Starting from photographs and memory, Krewer strips away the details of character, place and time to reveal the tension, vulnerability and sensuality of life in the city.

Krewer (born in Gerolstein, Germany in 1986) studied painting at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. He lives and works in the South Bronx, New York. Solo exhibitions include boogie nights, Tom Dick or Harry, Düsseldorf; pinkflavor, TRAMPS, New York; Car Park Godiva, Michael Werner Gallery, London; and Eyes on Fire, Michael Werner Gallery, New York and TRAMPS, New York.

ride or fly opens Friday 10 September at Michael Werner Gallery in London with a reception on Thursday 9 September from 6 – 8PM and will remain on view through Saturday 13 November. To ensure the safety of the public and staff, Michael Werner Gallery, London has implemented social distancing guidelines, which can be found here.
