Peruvian-born Belgian artist Till Freiwald paints watercolor portraits that hypnotically contribute to the dialogue of contemporary identity. Working in a traditional medium that has not enjoyed the edgy status of other media (such as installation, film, or video), Freiwald's watercolor portraits piercingly memorialize his sitters' identities. Freiwald paints his striking portraits from memory, and presents his sitter—or his memory of her—from the neck up, revealing only the luminous qualities of skin, hair, and eyes. This is Freiwald's first solo museum exhibition in the United States.
