Metabolism marks Trybala’s first solo exhibition in Asia, and is presented in conjunction with Singapore Art Week 2024.
Working in painting and drawing, Trybala centres her work on the complexity and dynamics of human relationships, drawing inspiration from personal experiences, relationships and conversations with friends and family. Her figurative practice maintains an astute dialogue with art history, questioning how feminine bodies have been represented, its tropes, and how these bodies occupy physical space in the art canon and the world. Working with an application of texture and colour that can be hot and grubby or sometimes saccharine sweet, Trybala renders her figures within a lens of intimacy and tenderness to create powerful paintings to explore ongoing notions of nurture, care and desire.
The new suite of works in Metabolism take Edvard Munch’s The Dance of Life (1899) as its starting inspiration, each painting building on its symbolism and narrative complexity which maps out the great valleys of human experience.
