GR gallery is pleased to announce "Blur Mode" a duo exhibition showcasing new works by internationally known artists: Geoffrey Bouillot and Mark Posey. Dubbed after the shared aesthetic vision and technical practice that bonded the two artists, the show will present 18 fresh paintings on canvas, and one print. Their work investigates and advance the discourse around breaking the familiarity and building a new point of view on everyday objects and routines, by decontextualize, reinventing and mixing these common compositions with new and cutting edge elements, pushing beyond the boundaries the figurative imagery in today's art scene and giving the viewer the instruments to build a new and curious eye toward everyday activity.
"Blur Mode" aims to exhibit the creative output of these exceptionally gifted artists that, through a common passion for imaginary still-life and landscape, specific aspects of nowadays latest life practice, a unique color palette and a hint of surreal perception, reinterpret the contemporary culture in two peculiar ways. This exhibition, esthetically characterized by Mark vibrant, bright and bewitching style, and Geoffrey's more gloom, contemplative and immersed approach, starts a discussion around contemporary topics such as, cultural isolation, self-referential artistic approach, aesthetic demystification, technical virtuosity and psychological conflicts.
Opening reception: Friday January 14, 5:00pm - 8:00pm
Exhibition Dates: Jan 15 – Feb 6, 2022.
