Shen Wei
A Season Particular

5 May - 3 June 2023


Private View: Thursday 4 May, 6-8pm


A Season Particular
 is a solo exhibition by New York-based Chinese-American artist Shen Wei. This exhibition of sensuous photographs explores notions of gender, form and desire, reflecting a practice which Shen Wei describes as “finding the spiritual and abstract similarities between our bodies and nature and emphasising the harmony, fragility, and interconnectedness of both.” 

In this exhibition, closely cropped figurative forms are interspersed with images of plants and blossoms, evoking a dreamlike sense of contemplation and calm. According to Shen Wei, “The unique beauty and interplay between the human body and nature aim to elicit a sense of awe, wonder, and appreciation for the world around us, as well as a way to explore more profound spiritual and philosophical questions about the nature of existence and the purpose of life."
