  • Juror-selected French artists to exhibit in NYC this August

  • Aug 25, 2015 at 7:00am to Sep 8, 2015 at 2:00pm
  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    The original work of two juror-selected innovative and talented French artists Juan Urbèt and Yvon Buchmann will be on display at Agora Gallery, NYC in The Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Exhibition.

     

    About Juan Urbèt

     

    Juan Urbèt's compositions, which can often be small in format, speak to intimacy and isolation with a raw emotional, urban energy. With limited colors and empty spaces, his pieces could be considered subdued, however they burst with energy with their graffiti-style interruptions: symbols, squiggles, and words that contextualize and caption lone subjects in uncertain worlds. 

     

    Trained in both Fine Arts and Business Administration, Urbèt uses mixed media on canvas, board, and paper to create extraordinary, tangible textures. His materials, technical skill, and impromptu methods all contribute to establishing the raw emotion and expressive character of his works. 

     

    About Yvon Buchmann

     

    “For me,” Yvon Buchmann says, “photography is capturing fleeting moments,” and in h

  • GEDDA: Giving Colors a Sense of Clarity

  • Jun 12, 2015 at 6:00am to Jul 2, 2015 at 2:00pm
  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    The subjects of GEDDA’s paintings are water and the cosmos, and those two worlds meet in images that ground an open airiness with fluidity and a dynamic sense of movement. Working in what she calls “the tradition of lyrical abstraction,” the artist animates her compositions by enhancing the depth and light of each color she uses, making her images glow from within. She also combines painting techniques and textures to strong effect, mixing liquid fields of color and drips of paint with sharply etched lines and rough, energetic brush strokes. These elements come together in works that balance freedom and openness with a tightly organized sense of formal balance.

     

    Over the course of her career, the artist has gone from making black and white drawings to oil on canvas paintings, to finding a unique style in her current work, done in oils and resin on plexiglass. Sometimes painting on both sides of the clear plexiglass surface, she gives her images a complex, multi-layered presence, making

  • Project 13: Ghass Rouzkhosh / a Solo Exhibition

  • Feb 13, 2015 at 6:00am to Mar 3, 2015 at 1:00pm
  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    Born in Shiraz, Iran in 1964, Ghass Rouzkhosh was 15 years old when the Islamic revolution began. A year later, Iraq invaded, sparking a conflict that would last for eight years - making it the longest conventional war of the 20th century. For a young man, the war was unavoidable.  Rouzkhosh spent two years as a soldier on the front-line, fighting Saddam Hussein’s forces.  After his part in the conflict, Rouzkhosh left for Paris, where he hoped to exorcise the images of war that had pervaded so much of his early life.  

     

    Feelings of rage and memories of blood and violence lingered, but Rouzkhosh sought to master the negative aspects of his history and transform them into something therapeutic for himself and the general public. Painting became his primary mode of self-expression. For nineteen years, Rouzkhosh limited his palette to three distinct colors. Red was chosen to reflect the sky after a bombing, black in memory of burnt nature, and white as a traditional symbol of peace and inn

    About Christian Charrière

    A collection of highly recognizable characters populates Christian Charrière’s paintings. Screen stars and rock icons are depicted with all the detail a portrait photographer would give them. The artist’s skill at capturing the personality of his subjects gives each image an echo of the familiar, while his subtle color palette and varied textures lift them beyond duplication. His subjects have a quality of simultaneously posing and being caught unaware, giving his paintings an immediacy that is tempered by a strong sense of formal c

  • Astonishing French Art in NYC Art Show

  • Dec 23, 2014 at 6:00am to Jan 15, 2015 at 1:00pm
  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    The original work of three French artists Brice Poircuitte, Nadiejda Charova Tscheltzoff and STORDEUR will be on display at Agora Gallery, NYC.

    About Brice Poircuitte

     

    The worlds of rock music, comic strips, and graphic art come together in Brice Poircuitte’s bold, provocative paintings. “It is important to me that each painting exudes emotion,” he says, and in his work strong, vibrant colors and unexpected, surreal arrangements of people and objects combine to create a psychedelic world that delivers a powerful emotional punch. In many of Poircuitte’s acrylic paintings (which often incorporate ballpoint pens and other media) intense colors emerge from black backgrounds, giving them a brooding darkness that channels and focuses their energy. Cartoonish figures are contained in an atmosphere that turns their whimsical nature into something far more intense and challenging.

     

    A musician himself, the artist has designed album covers and visuals for performers, including the legendary alternat

  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    The original work of three French artists Joëlle Kem Lika, Thomas Raoult and Val d’Off will be on display at Agora Gallery, NYC.

    About Joëlle Kem Lika

    French artist Joëlle Kem Lika takes her inspiration from nature, especially flowers and seascapes, though she turns such imagery into virtually Abstract Expressionist compositions bursting with gestural swaths of bold colors and brilliant plays of light. She cites the importance of the Buddhist concept of the "Pulse of Life" in her practice and, indeed, her works positively pulse with energy, whether in fiery and explosive canvases dominated by reds and yellows, or the evocative blues and greens of her water scenes and skyscapes.

    Working quickly and vigorously, Kem Lika applies her saturated acrylic paints in layers, so that subtle shadings and contrasting tones emerge beneath the bold, dominant hues. The thick brushstrokes give momentum and direction to the most abstract pieces, while also lending a textured, practically sculptural element

  • Blandine Girerd: Fantastic Fictions in Paint

  • Jul 29, 2014 at 7:00am to Aug 19, 2014 at 2:00pm
  • Location: 530 West 25th St, Chelsea, New York
  • Description:

    NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of French artist Blandine Girerd in Verve of Abstraction.

    Artist Blandine Girerd is a natural colorist. Her acrylic on canvas works are ripe with symbolism and anchored in figurative abstraction. Inspired by hue, vibration and music, her works are full of dynamically contrasting elements and are teeming with light. Gestural and instinctive, with a pure love of materiality, Girerd’s process incorporates the use of inks, scratching and collage for textural variety and plentiful rhythm. Delving into fantasy realms, her compositions invite a feeling of mystery and utilize color intensity as an expressive force. Although she favors blue, particularly darker shades and turquoise, no matter the color Girerd always rides fiercely to the psychological depth of her hues. Occasionally, she creates monochromatic works, zeroing in on the capacity of one color and mining its emotional and metaphysical riches.

    Blandine Girerd was bo

  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    The original work of three French artists Eponine Saint Hillier, Monique B. and Murielle Argoud will be on display at Agora Gallery, NYC.

    About Eponine Saint Hillier

    Eponine Saint Hillier is a relentlessly innovative artist whose work stretches the boundaries of painting. Saint Hillier depicts the traditional human body, but with a clash of painting practices – splashes appear over carefully-wrought surfaces, with realistic forms sharing the same space as abstract – or with atypical media. Even her technically straightforward oil paintings are arresting for their subjects’ direct gaze and surreal, beautiful use of color. Saint Hillier’s latest series is a combination of old and new techniques she calls “living painting.” She applies paint directly to a model’s body in swirling, charged colors that heighten and embroider the planes of the human shape. Then those models are photographed against a painted background to create a trompe-l’oeil effect that plays with depth, form, and above all

  • Ouni Mam: Conceptual Painter from the Reunion Island at Agora Gallery NYC

  • May 16, 2014 at 7:00am to Jun 5, 2014 at 2:00pm
  • Location: Agora Gallery
  • Description:

    NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Bruay la Buissiere artist Ouni Mam in Contemporary Perspectives. The exhibition begins on May 16, 2014 and runs until June 5, 2014, with an opening reception on the evening of Thursday May 22, at 6-8pm.

    About the Artist

    Ouni Mam paints in a wide variety of styles, from figurative to abstract and symbolic pieces. Yet despite the diversity of subjects in her work, every piece by this artist is recognizably hers. This is thanks to her personal signature of bright, saturated colors, impasto brushstrokes, and an emphasis on light and movement. Preferring to work in oils, Ouni Mam’s powerful pieces are creations of the moment, a reflection of the artist’s instincts and emotions as she stands in front of the canvas. As the artist herself explains, she paints “the incorporeal, the conceptual and intangible.” Whatever artistic style she employs, her paintings give the impression of being transparent veils that reveal differe
