Annex Gallery opening reception for Sophie Levesque and Derek Davidson on April 27th
Gallery Connexion’s Annex Gallery invites you to the opening reception of Au-delà des apparences by Sophie Levesque and Sketches: Beach and Beat by Derek Davidson on Friday April 27th, 2012 at The Playhouse from 5-6:45pm.
Sophie Levesque’s Au-delà des apparences is a series of acrylic paintings that deal with female self-image, and the question: “what is beauty.” The paintings depict a faceless, non-traditionally beautiful model, in various settings and poses. The paintings are created from Levesque’s interpretation of this woman’s beauty, and a vision as a beholder of beauty.
Derek Davidson compares his art practice to catch and release fishing.
“Each stage involves an interpretation,” Davidson said. “I catch and interpret what I see, and the viewer interprets the released image.”
Sketches: Beach and Beat is a series of painting depicting bodies in motion, in outdoor summer situations.
“This [work] completes a circle of activities in that the action of the sports activity captured with quick gestures approaches that of the en-place painting that captures a moment of people and their activity.”
