Over the last three years Standing has been artist in residence at Amilla Fushi in the Maldives, and has taken part in residencies in the Philippines, Shanghai, and Mexico.

Standing’s vibrant and inventive painting has developed along a complex path. Sublime in the originality and mastery of his brush stroke, they are informed by anthropology, biology and the complexities of existence, both physical and metaphysical.

“I am a London based Zimbabwean artist, who works predominantly in painting. Earlier in the year, during lockdown I was playing a lot with paper, collage and printing making. ‘Remnant 1 & 2’ , an allegory of a vanishing essence, a trace, a fossil, evolved from this mark making exploration.”
