I Have Always Been A Weeper At The Cinema is Faye Wei Wei’s second London solo exhibition at Cob Gallery featuring a new suite of paintings. Filled with iconography and steeped in the romanticism that Wei Wei’s paintings have become known for, the new works are inspired by seduction and the experience of love, personal memory and, more directly they emote the rhythms found in poetry. The exhibition features a group of large scale floral paintings, which energetically fluctuate between the figurative and the abstracted. The show runs until November 2nd.
