Pace is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by artist Brice Guilbert at its Palo Alto gallery
The exhibition will include four large-scale paintings and a selection of smaller works. The pieces in this presentation are all titled Fournez, named for the local pronunciation of the Piton de la Fournaise volcano on Réunion Island, where the artist was raised from age two to 14. For these works, which are part of a series the artist has been producing for the last six years, Guilbert uses variously colored oil sticks on wood to create layered, gestural marks, imbuing each semi-abstract rendering of the volcano with different moods and resonances.
