Frances Waite, "Nudist excuse", 2019

$1,100


Description

Work is framed and was in the Female Trouble show in Chicago at Western Exhibitions that was co-organized by Elijah Wheat Showroom. Frances Waite works primarily with drawing and paper and creates sentimental works that call to action a consideration of intimacy and identity in contemporary culture. Her drawings can be seen as a constant exploration of what it means to be present and looked upon in the age of the internet. Following her graduation from Pratt Institute in 2015, Frances gained considerable recognition with a series of drawings drawn from hundreds of anonymous, yet solicited, nude “selfies” collected on social media. Incredibly prolific, she works within frame of vulnerable observation and continues to create provocative works on paper, focusing on the body, self, and online community. Frances’s work has been shown throughout the United States, collected around the world, and appeared in numerous online and print publications. Frances lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Frances Waite renders horny apocalyptic meltdowns in her photorealistic graphite drawings. In these tableaus she asks questions about ultimate desire: When the end of the world hits, what will you do? Will you go underground and hide? Will you grab your lover and hold them tight? Will you dance like nothing is out of the ordinary? Will you spread love? If the outside is crumbling, are you, too? In Waite’s world, humans have no other choice than to ‘do it.’ In her drawings Waite reaches a climax: Spread big love.
