‘Elements and Oddities’ features a collection of 23 acrylic works on canvas from two of the leading voices in the new pop surrealism movement. Hailing from Canada, Jacub Gagnon examines the natural world’s connection to the inanimate and the relationships between humans and the animal kingdom in his detail drenched works which are set in a dark ‘every place’ void. Gagnon’s examinations of the unnatural state of nature are the perfect compliment to Yosuke Ueno‘s illusory landscapes rife with icons both puzzling and perfect. Ueno’s work is a refreshing mix of positive elements and colossal hope that echo the history of his native Japan. The two come together in ‘Elements and Oddites’ to play off each other in the most compelling way.

ALSO showing concurrently in our project room will be ‘Lowbrow Love Letter’, an exhibition of 11 new acrylic works on canvas from east coast pop surrealist extraordinaire David MacDowell in what will be his second solo exhibition with our gallery. ‘Lowbrow Love Letter’ features some of MacDowell’s most brazen and hyper surreal works to date. Be sure to come through this Saturday to discover for yourself why Arrested Motion refer to him as a “master satirist painter“.

We will also be showcasing a series of five new works from local artist David Cooley in our office area. Look for a digital preview of these works later this week. His paintings are layered with little 3D paint ‘spikes’ which are hand-painted over printed fabric with the precision of a surgeon and the patience of a saint. His work simply demands in-person viewing.
Please let us know if you have any questions, require additional images, or would like to purchase any of the works in either of this month’s exhibitions. Just shoot us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get right back to you with full details. PLEASE NOTE: We’ll begin getting back to folks on Thursday afternoon, April 28th after all have had the chance to view the digital previews. We have a large list of regular patrons for all three artists and we’re just making sure everyone has had the chance to see the previews before we start following up, so please know speed of response doesn’t guarantee anything.
Reception with the artists:
THIS Saturday, April 30th from 6-8PM
