Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

Fragments of knocked over red wine glasses, half-empty green bottles, leftover spare ribs, cakes and uncontrolled figures characterise the visual world that the London-based artist Olivia Sterling lays out before us in her new exhibition Your Cheeks Are Wine, as though we viewers were on a first date in a restaurant or flirting at the bar. Filled with people interacting and intimate bodily relationships, the paintings are a colourful spectacle of various desires: without so much as a fully recognisable face, the bodily postures and hand gestures simultaneously convey a longing for affection, more food and quite possibly for more wine.
