I won't be able to make the opening tonight, but plan on getting in to see this very interesting looking show in a few weeks when I'm back in NYC - from a media release:
Alexandre Guillaume invites you to his opening reception
Friday, August 06, 2010
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM EDT
Muriel Guepin Gallery
47 Bergen street
Alexandre Guillaume's acrylic paintings offer a more masculine take on abstraction. In his work, Guillaume incorporates the speed, brutality and impatience we experience in daily life to create paintings that ultimately leave the viewer in peace. A thick, carefully placed, large brush stroke interrupts a solid ground to end in light, airy splashes of thin lines, alleviating an omnipresent tension. His palette ranges from a monochromatic grey, to a swath of black paint on a bright orange, yellow, blue or red ground.
His work will be on view at the gallery from August 6th through September 12th. (10 paintings, chance to see some large format like 76, 84 inches)
How to get there via Subway:
F Train - Bergen stop.
2, 3, 4 or 5 train to Borough Hall.
Or the R train to Court Street.
The Gallery is located at 47 Bergen Street
between Smith and Court Streets.
