About the artist:
Gray Wielebinski (b. 1991 Dallas, TX, USA) lives and works in London, UK. In Wielebinski’s expansive practice, incorporating video, performance, collage, installation, sculpture, and more, he explores the intersections of mythology, identity, gender, nationhood, and memory. Reconfiguring and transforming iconography and visual codes, his work seeks to navigate and question society’s frameworks and belief systems. Wielebinski deftly confronts realities in order to imagine and propose alternatives.
Recent exhibitions include Oil and Water, a solo show at Hales Gallery in London, By Any Means, his first curated show at VO Curations in London, UK, Two Snakes, a solo show at 12.26 Gallery in Dallas, Texas (2020), Repurposed Textiles at Krefelder Kunstverein in Krefeld, DE (2020) and at Frieze London with Hales Gallery, London in 2020. Wielebinski’s work is in the collections of Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA, USA and San Francisco Museum of Modern Art Library & Archives, CA, USA.
About the poster:
"As I was doing more research into Van Gogh's time in London, I got excited about his love of Christmas. He was particularly obsessed with Dickens' Christmas stories which, like Van Gogh's work, are quite dark and weird and beautiful and funny in many ways. The Victorian period was when a lot of contemporary traditions around Christmas were created whilst at the same time being a lot weirder and more bizarre than they initially seem.
I thought it would be fun to make a Christmas themed poster with references to some of Van Gogh's own recurring imagery and interests, as well as themes from Dickens' stories and more broad Victorian ideas surrounding Christmas as well as recurring imagery and iconography I'm interested in my own work."
