This event has ended.

Michael Werner Gallery presents Florian Krewer: light the ocean, an exhibition of new paintings by German-born, Bronx-based artist Florian Krewer.

With the New York night as his muse, Krewer paints all the vastness, liberation, and uncertainty it has to offer. Derived from lived experiences and fantasy, the artist creates a seductive world of drag queens, sex scenes, and magical encounters set against the staged backdrops of imagined landscapes and interiors. Primal needs, longing, and precarious interactions are transmitted to the canvas with the greater intention of revealing our collective vulnerabilities.

Florian Krewer (born in Gerolstein, Germany in 1986) studied painting at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. Solo exhibitions include Es liebt Dich und Deine Körperlichkeit ein Verwirrter, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf; ride or fly, Michael Werner Gallery, London; Eyes on Fire, Michael Werner Gallery, New York and Tramps, New York; Car Park Godiva, Michael Werner Gallery, London; and pinkflavor, Tramps, New York. The artist is a recent recipient of the Prix Jean-François Prat awarded by the Bredin Prat Foundation and the subject of the solo exhibition everybody rise, opening May 2023 at the Aspen Art Museum and then traveling to M WOODS Museum in Beijing.
