Opening earlier this month, Tran Nguyen’s A Place Procured From Our Yesteryears depicts larger than life women amongst Parisian architecture. The muted tones set the mood while emotion spills from their eyes, suggesting they don’t feel as large as they appear.
The diverse use of color in Jason Wheatley’s new works titled Osmosis, leap off the canvas, despite the mostly still-life subject matter. Each piece features some everyday items we might find in our kitchen, with the inclusion of wild life. Appearing in almost every piece, is the proverbial monkey-on-the-back, something Jason says is just as prevalent in our lives as the other objects in the paintings.
A Place From Our Yesteryears and Osmosis can be seen until August 31st at the Roq la Rue Gallery.
