SYLVIE GRENIER @ Galerie Old Chelsea
September 15 to October 4, 2017
Vernissage: Sunday, 17 September, 2017, 1-4pm.
Galerie Old Chelsea presents “Éclat”, a collection of the latest paintings by Sylvie Grenier.
Sylvie Grenier takes landscapes into new territory. She boils down the idea of landscape into a simple horizon, sometime nearly hidden, and then explodes it with light and colour. Think of her horizons as waterscapes where the flash in the sky is captured and transformed in the reflection below. It is a landscape in the hall of mirrors.
This new collection explores the boundaries between figuration and abstraction to create a space based on memories, somewhere between seeing and feeling. The works are characterized by the simplicity of composition, strong colours, high contrasts and bold strokes.
