«Edy Ferguson, Coke Tragedy» at the Galerie Cortex Athletico, Paris.

Edy Ferguson, Coke Tragedy, Courtesy Galerie Cortex Athletico, Bordeaux-Paris. Image 1: Control (Ian Curtis), 2008. Acrylic on canvas, 120 x 140cm. Image 2: Red Sea, 2011. Oil painting on canvas, 50cm x 60cm.

For her first solo exhibition, the American artist Edy Ferguson presents a body of paintings and drawings made between 2008 and 2014.

Coke Tragedy is a visual diary where popular icons of pop punk culture (such as Amy Winehouse and Ian Curtis) sit alongside literary and media figures. The dialogue that Edy Ferguson creates with her art is not far from that of figures like Calder, Basquiat, de Kooning, Matisse and Picasso. In these spaces, she inserts dramas that pass through her world, like characters in a play.
Until May 18.
