MICHAEL ALBERON

Mélange of Milieu
February 14 – March 7, 2017
Reception: Thursday, February 16, 2017 6-8 PM

Michael Alberon’s experimental, dream-like paintings are lyrical visions of the body in motion. Alberon often uses both acrylic and oil on the same canvas, with impeccably controlled technique. Paint is doled out with utmost efficiency, texture is achieved with the fewest number of brushstrokes possible, and lines are crisp and sure. These are not minimalist works, but rather images of perfect eloquence. Within this space, Alberon straddles the line between realism and gentle surrealism.

Alberon decribes his artistic approach as being primarily “interested in the human figure and its significance in the art world.” His compositions foreground the body, which is displayed in elaborate positions taken from the classical language of painting. Each work features multiple figures in varied poses that create a beautiful pattern of organic, positive, and negative space. Surrealist touches make up their environments: a colossal fist, a room that recedes from color to black and white, or simply more figures - that fly.

Alberon was born in Paris, France, where he continues to live today. He studied fine art in both Paris and New York City.
