“Interpreting Layers” opens at Nohra Haime Gallery September 10, 6-8pm
September 10, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Interpreting Layers compares the work of contemporary abstract artists Francisca Sutil and Pierre Dunoyer. While both have a strong focus on layering the canvas with strokes, lines and spaces, their varying approaches produce vastly different results.
Rather than painting subjects, both artists veered toward abstraction early in their career.
Dunoyer focuses of the “practice” of painting, honing the essence of the stroke and the physical expression of the brush. With bold strokes of colorful, thickly layered paint, the artist covers only part of the canvas in his signature style. Intentional space is left between well-defined gestures to enhance the relationship between color and form.
Sutil on the other hand, has a methodical, almost meditative approach to her brushwork that exudes delicacy, restraint, and precision. It is a mental process from which a neat and pure chromatic production emerges. Her work is characterized by its superb construction and encourages reflection and meditation.
The exhibition runs from September 10 – 28, 2019.
