GARESE

I Remember You, I Know this Place
November 10 – December 1, 2018
Reception: Thursday, November 15, 2018 6-8 PM

French painter Garese is a traditionally trained artist with an impressive background and education in the fine arts. She studied at Les Beaux-arts de Bordeaux, then at ICART in Paris. She trained in both the traditional and decorative arts, which gives her the unique ability to draw in techniques from both disciplines. The combination of these two different approaches to art can be seen in her elegant handling of light and color to model the subjects of her paintings. Her work is a coherent thread between the worlds of today and the world of the past, and could most aptly be described as ‘timeless.’

Working exclusively in oil on linen, Garese creates paintings featuring portraiture, landscapes, and still-life work. She sources inspiration from the Old Masters, and specifically the artists John Singer Sargent, Henri Fantin-Latour, Joaquin Sorolla, and Gustav Klimt, as well as American Cinema from the 1950’s and 1960’s. She employs painting techniques from historical traditions among the decorative arts, including trompe l’oeil and other decorative techniques. She skillfully juxtaposes these historical technique with abstract elements, resulting in visually captivating and uniquely contemporary pieces. In doing this, she endeavors to bring new eyes to discover anew aspects of art and the world, which are too often forgotten among contemporary works today. From archetypal figures from the past, to the delicate use of light and detail in her subject’s costumes. In the same vein, her still lives and landscapes capture a serenity that is intended to contrast the fast paced, overcrowded world of today.
