Andrea Wan contemplates the idea of fading youth and imminent mortality in her new series of ink and gouache paintings. Her solo show "Fleeting Seasons" is currently on view at BC Gallery in her home base of Berlin. The paintings in "Fleeting Seasons" feature hybridized figures — girls as islands whose bodies combine with nature and architecture. Each head and torso serves as a home to a host of strange, mysterious characters that appear to beckon the central, youthful protagonist into a world beyond. Anthropomorphic skeletons and loose eyeballs hint at life beyond the grave while jubilant butterflies and plants pull her back to the earthly kingdom. "Fleeting Seasons" is on view through February 28.
