At the beginning of the 21st century, Grace Weaver (*1989) breathes new life into figurative painting. Her works are abuzz with the present, graceful, sexy, contemplative, and witty. Her paintings are of subtle gestures, poses, and gazes. Situational observations of daily life conjoin with sensitive self-reflections, bold drafts merge with a revelling chromaticity. Weaver’s young protagonists, in groups, as couples, or fully absorbed with their own „care of the self“, most often seem to wonder, who they actually are or want to be. For the first time, this monograph gives a survey of her stunning œuvre.
