Frédéric Bruneau

The First Exhibition in New York

Among the concerns that are caused by his son's rare disease and the role of caregiver that he has taken on in this matter, Frédéric Bruneau has been painting as his outlet. For six years, he has painted characters inspired by his son and those that resonate with New York.

Until February 21, a dozen paintings by the artist from Quebec will be exposed in a gallery of the Big Apple. In the early summer, Agora Gallery had invited Bruneau to present his work. "At first, I thought that it was a joke," he says, "I'm not a famous artist."

Artistas chilenos se toman Nueva York con cuatro exposiciones en importantes galerías

Previo a las celebraciones de Fiestas Patrias en Chile, un grupo de artistas nacionales protagoniza en Estados Unidos una serie de exposiciones, las cuales se inauguraron en tres prestigiosas galerías de Nueva York.

Cristóbal Lehyt es uno de ellos. El artista de la Universidad Católica abrió el pasado 10 de septiembre la muestra "Iris Sheets" en la Americas Society. Aunque lleva varios años radicado en ese país- donde realizó estudios en el Hunter College de Nueva York-, el chileno se anota un triunfo al montar esta exhibición.

Rollyson admits she’s intrigued by the shape and uses it in many different ways through her art. Her favorite displayed painting in Sterling Heights is called “Becoming the Circle,” in which it appears as if circles are taking root in soil.

Guatemala´s Karla Higueros art exhibition at the Agora Gallery in New York

Guatemalan born artist Karla Higueros believes that through her artwork she expresses her deepest feelings, energy, emotions and spirituality. This translates in moods and actions that interact with the canvas at the moment of producing a painting; therefore achieving its own life, which in turn she can sense when she utilizes sand that passes on to her its natural flow and movements. These natural movements in her painting are not forced or compelled; they simply are a translation of the harmony that exists between the sand, the canvas and the spirit of the artist.

Painting should be like a symphony, untranslatable, a discipline unto itself" Jessica Quinn reviews artist Patrick Walshe for the Claire Champion.

Nella Lush in Elements of Structure

Artist Nella Lush tells a visual tale of emotion, of mood in its purest manifestation, immersing the viewer into a dimension where time and the material world no longer exist. She creates atmosphere by deconstructing shape and form; the vibrant space of the large, abstract paintings telling a different story to each viewer. Her fluid brushwork, loose, unstructured contours and luminous color palette of blues and greens or earthy yellows and oranges sparkle with the Mediterranean influences of her native Italy.
