In his latest solo show at The Fitzrovia Gallery London, Georg Meyer-Wiel presents a new body of works on paper, exploring the male figure. Starting with a series of portraits on vintage letters, the exhibition explores multiple facets of masculinity through a rich variety of media.
Following Georg’s life-long habit of collecting old documents, many of his figurative drawings are executed on antique airmail envelopes, postcards and other historic correspondence.
The subject of travelling creates unique narratives by placing the figures in times and places that actually once existed, in a world now long lost. These artworks invite us to travel the world and map out long forgotten journeys and relations.
For Georg the fluidity of drawing lends itself to an accurate recording of bodies in performance. This examination of a transient moment is an intimate carnal dialogue, urgent and demanding.
‘’Georg Meyer-Wiel’s drawing is a never-ending, constantly updated work in progress, intensely personal, executed with graphic haste in the heat of the moment.. They present, in public, a private truth. Seen one by one, they offer us brief encounters of a very masculine immediacy, finding tenderness in the raunchiest of beauties; seen as a series, they initiate a charged conversation with the viewer.’’
