  • French Artist, Patrick Girod, in NYC Exhibition

  • Jan 11, 2011 at 6:00am to Feb 1, 2011 at 1:00pm
  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description: Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature French artist, Patrick Girod, in Enigmatic Realms. The exhibition is scheduled to run from January 11, 2011 through February 1, 2011 (opening reception: Thursday, January 13, 2011).Patrick Girod’s work combines the ecstatic effulgence considered endemic to his native France with the strictness and humility associated with Switzerland. Working with oil on canvas in a traditional drip technique, Girod’s meandering compositions match the fanaticism of Pollock with the austerity of the Minimalists. Equally heuristic and playful, Girod’s oil drips appear in modest quantities but act fiercely upon the senses, creating a "neuronal impressionism" reminiscent of music, dance and dream life. Thin, wailing lines come to meet delicate droplets falling in place like cosmic constellations or notes in a swinging musical score. In other instances, we see Girod’s swift stroke take on anthropomorphic qualities, suggesting movement and bodily communication. Form, line

    The 2nd Annual Interceltic Festival of NY presented by BZH New York will again be an evening of music and dance celebrating the common heritage, traditions, culture, and story of immigration of Celtic peoples in New York City. Thirty musicians locally based or from abroad, will create a ceilidh or fest noz like atmosphere highlighting the dancing nature of Celtic music.

    The evening will also be an opportunity to promote the regions, culture, economy, language, tourism and uniqueness of each individual Celtic nation.
