Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature French artist, François Daubagne, in Elements of Abstraction. The exhibition is scheduled to run from December 16, 2010 through January 7, 2011 (opening reception: Thursday, December 02, 2010).François Daubagne’s energetic abstractions appear to melt and swirl in a vibrant dance before our very eyes. We experience rhythm in its purest state, free from the bonds of reality. Often an object, person or landscape serves as a starting point, but then Daubagne then allows his mind and brush to wander, crafting wonderfully rich combinations of organic forms and vivid hues. We may detect remnants of natural vistas or figures, but he usually obscures any realism in favor of his signature abstract expressionism. His style is primarily free form, as daubs of paint drift and collide, dispersing much like oil in water. In fact, this appearance is encouraged by his use of acrylic and oil together on canvas or board. A dreamer with a particularly romantic vision of art, Daubagne “wants to go far away in our society to swim with colors like musical notes.”An ENT surgeon by trade, François Daubagne has nonetheless managed to exhibit frequently for over twenty years throughout France and in Germany, Dubai and the United States.Exhibition Dates: December 16, 2010 – January 7, 2011Reception: Thursday, December 16, 2010, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.Gallery Location: 530 West 25th St, New York CityGallery Hours: Tues – Sat, 11a.m. - 6 p.m.Event URL: the Exhibition:A powerful sense of vitality infuses the works in Elements of Abstraction, as the artists thrust their full enjoyment of life into their art, creating a sense of movement and energy that will sweep you along with it.
