New York, NY, October 29, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature Swiss artist, Florence Alexandra Vouilloz, in Sensorial Perspectives. The exhibition is scheduled to run from October 29, 2010 through November 19, 2010 (opening reception: Thursday, November 04, 2010).
Florence Alexandra Vouilloz’s paintings are full of life, movement, and human feeling. Working primarily in acrylic colors on wood in her native Switzerland, Florence creates academic human figures set against abstract backgrounds. Her keen sense of composition seamlessly fuses these two schools together, creating harmonic images that flow easily between realism and abstraction. Inspired by the likes of Michelangelo, Raphael, Botticelli, William Bouguereau, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the academically informed angles and curves in her nudes are carefully rendered, lending detail to muscles, tendons, bones, and skin that injects a sense of power and movement into the bodies. Light and shadow work to bring further contrast and interest to the image, creating cohesion with the surrounding looser forms.
While Florence’s paintings are colorful, those colors are subtle enough to allow her strengths of line, form, and composition to dominate. What results are vigorous renderings of the human form that are rife with emotion, offering the viewer a further perspective into the experience of what it is to be human.
Exhibition Dates: October 29, 2010 – November 19, 2010
