André Brasilier in NY
OCTOBER 13, 2017 - NOVEMBER 13, 2017
OPERA GALLERY NEW YORK
André Brasilier’s paintings explore the world as if viewed on a horse ride through the Saumur ountryside, over the course of a long summer afternoon. Akin to the natural landscapes around Touraine which were the artist’s first source of inspiration, his work requires a significant amount of time to be discovered and relished. It changes over days and seasons, shifting from touches of ochre, black and white to solid red with emerald patterns and expanses of blue. Brasilier’s work has matured over more than 60 years and continues to inspire the same sense of peacefulness and tranquility, the warmth of reassuring places, familiar to people on all continents. The lyricism and sincerity that inhabit the barely-outlined figures in his paintings are emotive, as if they were there almost by chance, a serendipitous presence. Since the beginning of what would become the lengthy process of learning, in 1994, Brasilier’s work has seemed to us intimately and universally humanist. His themes – nature, music, horses, muses – are simple yet powerful, depicted with an application and technique inherited from the great French academic tradition.
Andy Denzler - Suspended Reality
October 21, 2016 - November 03, 2016
“Suspended Reality”, the title of Andy Denzler’s new exhibition held at Opera Gallery New York could not summarize better his vision and his work. Denzler’s paintings are images frozen in time, giving that perfect impression of the abstract and the figurative. Distorted figures are the result of Denzler’s unique technique using painting, printing and graphic design. His work moves between abstraction and reality, diverting the classical uses of oil painting to broach the shifting lines between fiction and reality. Denzler’s pieces are snap-shots of events that take place in the span of mere moments, distorted in their movements, their timeframe artificially smeared and elongated into frozen eternities. People have tried to compare Denzler’s work to many other artists, yet his style is unprecedented. He intends to reveal a topographic surface of valleys, fissures, craters, divots and explosions in oil that close return to the nonfigurative. The resulting blurry images are created by the smearing of paint with a spatula, disfiguring the featured subjects’ indentities, speaking to both the distorted quality of memory and the physicality of paint textures.
