Figurative or Abstract? Alexandre-Éric Piette at Agora Gallery

NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Canadian artist, Alexandre-Éric Piette in Unbound Perspectives
By: Joyce
March 6, 2012 - PRLog -- “Art is to the soul what architecture is to civilization – its most significant expression,” remarks Canadian artist Alexandre-Éric Piette, whose mixed media works on canvas blur the boundaries of figuration and abstraction. Blooming neon formations in free form galactic motion are set against texturized and somber backdrops of navy, royal blue, maroon and crimson. Influenced by his interdisciplinary studies in dance, music and poetry, these delicate abstractions invoke hosts of associations, among them the oceanic, botanic, astronomical and nuclear. Each viewer will connect naturally with the aspect that is most pertinent to them. At home with color, texture and the subtle nuances of light and motion, Piette’s work records the luminosity and rhythm of the object at work in space.
Alexandre-Éric Piette has been a resident of Joliette for the past 18 years. In 2011 he was awarded the First Athena Prize by the International Academy of Fine Arts of Quebec in recognition of his artistic merit in the Visual Arts.

About the Exhibition:

The days may still seem short, but the artwork displayed at Agora Gallery this March will bring light, warmth and a sense of freshness to your day. Let yourself experience a new way of viewing the world through the work displayed in East Meets West: an Exhibition of Fine Art from Asia, in which talented Asian artists unite their personal abilities with their sensitivity to universal affairs, to create art which is often informed by their cultural heritage. Unbound Perspectives provides new insight into the world we live in, as the artists tread the delicate line between realism and optimism to show us both what is and what could be. In Reverie of Form takes us on a journey of discovery and delight that nonetheless relates to aspects of shared human experience, hinting gently at the wonder that we often ignore.
