Marion Wagschal @ Canada Gallery

5 February 2016 - 15 April 2016

Marion Wagschal is an exhibition of paintings created between 1980 and 2015. Reflecting the painter’s affinity for psychological portraits, the selected works are telling of her preferred subject: the feminine figure as a repository of stories both personal and universal.
Wagschal has a pronounced inclination towards empathetic figuration, and an affinity with the work of James Ensor and Egon Schiele.
In this exhibition, Wagschal’s work celebrates an unadulterated beauty, inspired by the depiction of the female form in historical painting. The works illustrate a deep connection to life, old age, fragility, and fate that is not sad but powerful because it is wholly acknowledged.
