Peter Roux: Suspension and Segment
Jun 08-Jul 08
Peter Roux uses landscape as a platform for exploring visual dynamics, utilizing epic subjects such a cloud formations and large billows of smoke, as pulls into illusory space and then sets them into dialogue with elements of gestural marks and flat space often at the edges of the pictorial window.
Sharp fields of blacked-out blocking, pushing into areas of deeper representational space further define what is available to the viewer and how it is all ultimately judged by the eye. In these offsets Roux finds tensions and relationships that reflect on how contemporary spatial language and image can be understood.
This is Peter Roux first solo exhibition at Lyons Wier Gallery. A graduate of Massachusetts College of Art MFA and the University of Massachusetts Amherst, MA BFA, Roux has exhibited throughout the United States from Ogunquit, ME, Boston, MA, Marthas Vineyard, MA, Providence, RI, Charlotte, NC, Atlanta, GA to Seattle, WA, Palo Alto, CA and Sun Valley, ID. His paintings are included in select corporate collections such as Fidelity Investments, Ritz-Carlton Hotels, Four Seasons Hotels, Marriott Hotels, Westin W Hotels, Meditech Corporation and Greenfield and Lynch as well as the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln, MA. Peter Roux lives and works in North Carolina.
Stephanie Hirsch: Indestructible
Nov 17-Dec 17
Using beads, sequins and embroidery to literally and figuratively illuminate her canvases, Stephanie Hirsch explores themes of self-awareness and self-transformation. For Hirsch, Indestructible draws upon the history of the garden as a metaphor and is a cathartic hybrid of art-making and spiritual growth.
