Edwige Fouvry

June 9 — July 7, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, June 9, 3:00-5:00 PM

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Entrevoir, an exhibition of new work by Edwige Fouvry, on view from June 7 to July 7. Fouvry’s paintings are exercises in locating order in chaos. She takes the disarray of our shared worlds and daily lives and examines and rearranges it, seeking harmony and coherence without falling prey to overly neat or artificial resolutions. Making deft choices of color, form, and gesture, she sets abstraction against representation, painted against raw canvas, line against wash, dry against dripping brushwork, and loose gestures against tightly rendered eddies of swirling marks. This visual tension, however, is perfectly calibrated, creating a type of pressure that supports rather than wrenches apart. By drawing the eye in and carefully guiding it around a given scene, Fouvry allows the viewer to apprehend relationships, patterns, and moments of beauty that might have otherwise gone unnoticed.… read more

The Shadows
April 7 — 28, 2018
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 7, 3:00-5:00 PM

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce The Shadows, an exhibition of new work by Kai Samuels-Davis. Each of Samuels-Davis’s paintings are born of a long creative process. Some take years to complete as he reworks marks and rethinks colors in a struggle for balance and harmony. The constant negotiation of a distinct emotional pitch—a task profoundly impacted by Samuels-Davis’s changing life circumstances—also defines his process. As the layers of paint and personal history build, so too does a sense of depth and dimensionality, lending a mystery to the works that precludes simple or linear readings.… read more

Art About Art: A Luminous Pursuit
March 1 — 31, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 1, 5:30-7:30 PM

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Art about Art: A Luminous Pursuit, an exhibition of new work by Guy Diehl on view March 1–31. As art about art, Diehl’s paintings explore different artistic movements across recent history, often by referencing other artists within the composition itself. The still-life format, a rich tradition in its own right, allows Diehl to set up relationships between art historical references and carefully chosen everyday objects, encouraging viewers to draw their own connections and conclusions.… read more

In his quest for nuanced artistic results that upend traditional approaches to art-making, he spotlights light as a medium in and of itself.… read more
