Lu Magnus takes you to FRACTURED REVERIE, Fawad Khan‘s solo exhibition with the gallery in downtown New York.
The exquisite explosions of Fawad Khan‘s paintings combine the bourgeoning issue of war with several automotive motifs that represent different cultural experiences and influences throughout his life. His works question the use of the automobile, an invention used for the purpose of transportation but becoming more and more a tool of destruction
In addition to his delicately-rendered gouaches for which Khan is known for, FRACTURED REVERIE presents a stunning wall animation installation – his largest to date – measuring 17 1/2 feet by 17 feet (5.4 x 5 meters), equivalent to the height and width of the gallery’s north exhibition wall. Projected images of everyday objects such as traffic cones and automobile fragments – nuts, bolts and rearview mirrors – seemingly come to life and ricochet off 2 junkyard automobiles that are painted directly onto the wall.
Fawad Khan was born in Tripoli, Libya in 1978 and currently lives and works in New York.
