UNITED KINGDOM---Marlborough Fine Art is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Beijing-based artist Song Yige, curated by Zeng Fanzhi. The exhibition is the artist’s first solo show outside of Asia. Known for her figurative paintings, Song depicts everyday objects and anonymous characters, alongside subjects from the natural world in imaginary settings. Her atmospheric works feature modest items often eschewed from their pictorial background. Through large-scale emotive and unsettling paintings Song merges childhood memories with autobiographical settings to reinterpret modern society.
