Rick Stevens, Jean-Francois Larrieu to be Exhibited at Canfin

• Bookmarks: 56

Tree-of-Life-Canfin-Gallery-PAGE-18Canfin Gallery in Tarrytown will be showing the work of Rick Stevens and Jean-Francois Larrieu in October and November. Both artists articulate a number of aesthetic influences and thematic references as windows into their artistic endeavors.

Rick Stevens: “My work is a combination of being self-referential and alluding to something else. By self-referential I mean that there’s an emphasis on the materials, the paint being, in large part, the subject matter. But there are also allusions to the landscape; the spatial relationships, textures, patterns, color combinations in nature.”

“Klimt has a combination of the sensual and spiritual that I respond to. His landscapes are heightened with vibrating patterns of colors that are simultaneously decorative and descriptive. Degas influenced me a lot with his compositions and use of pastels. George Inness’ late work has a mystical, dreamy quality with subdued lighting that is palpable. He used the techniques of the Hudson River School painters that included glazing. I was never taught glazing techniques but experimented with it because of his work.”

(Stevens exhibit: October 3 – 25)

Jean-Francois Larrieu: (The Hudson Independent, Oct 17, 2013) “As much as a soul reflection than a mirror to the culture, Jean-Francois Larrieu paintings are one vision leading to amazement. The public eye immerses itself within his colorful and unexpected universe.”

“His favorite topics are trees, reaffirming the roots and absolute necessity of plants, enabling genuine human development and survival. With his powerful and singular language, his landscapes are filled with magical boxes, people and birds, opening a door, an enigmatic path toward the wonder of the known and the unknown, flowing with a musical cadence where imaginary is king.”

(Larrieu exhibit: November 7 – 29)
