Elizabeth Xi Bauer presents an exhibition of new works by Gokula Stoffel in conversation with Alexandra Zarins’ most recent series of paintings.

The exhibition will run from 16th June – 22nd July 2023, open Wednesday through to Saturday, 12 – 6 pm or by appointment.

A Private View was held on 15th June 2023, 6 – 8 pm in the presence of the artists.

Both Alexandra Zarins and Gokula Stoffel work extensively with figuration – across various mediums – to create a magical, oneiric universe. Rather than implying the human figure to create idyllic narratives, both artists share a taste for the mysterious, evident in their use of a darker palette and in the way they portray their subjects. Angular bones, mischievous eyes, fleshy limbs are all recurring motifs in both Stoffel and Zarins’ paintings. Their subjects appear to be caught between two worlds: this one and one of wild delights.
