Now Paint Something Temporary

Western Exhibitions is thrilled to present Joey Fauerso’s second solo show with the gallery, Now Paint Something Temporary. Her new series of figurative paintings on raw unstretched canvas created during artist residencies, including MacDowell and Yaddo in 2021 and 2022, continues her use of humor and theatricality to shift and subvert traditional gender roles and genres within Western art.

In this show themes of waiting, confinement, leisure, pleasure and escape manifest in dense and playful ways-languid nude men recline in groups, gathering for no particular purpose but to be admired, women scramble and stride to escape their fixed position within the compositions.
