Winter Collective II 2020

Group exhibition of painting and sculpture featuring Joseph Adolphe, Beth Carter, Marc Chalmé, Guillaume Chansarel, Marc Dailly, Laurent Dauptain, Jernej Forbici, Federico Infante, Eric Roux-Fontaine, Brian Keith Stephens, and Benoît Trimborn

17 February–22 March 2020

HUGO GALERIE is pleased to present Winter Collective II, the second of the season’s two group exhibitions. Please join us as snow melts into spring.

Joseph Adolphe’s large canvases show the delicate side of a bull and the formidable angle of a flower; these incongruous qualities recall the tug-of-war between universal forces that exist within nature and ourselves. Bronze and plaster sculptures by Beth Carter are allegories of the human condition, as mythological as they are contemporary, as invincible as they are sensitive. Like dusk and dawn, Marc Chalmé’s paintings are mysterious spaces equally evocative and enthralling. Guillaume Chansarel romances the urban framework in his artistic investigation of graphical representation, the constructions of perspective, and how perspective can deepen an architectural subject. Marc Dailly captures the strangeness of the everyday in overlooked moments—not the party but its aftermath, not a family posing but mid-meal, not a home perfectly prepared for guests but slightly unkempt with a lone resident doing something utterly normal off-center. Laurent Dauptain is a master of portraiture; whether of the self or flowers, his powerful portraits are deft compilations of what is seen and unseen. Jernej Forbici’s painterly play of color promotes the artist’s environmentally conscious narrative urging us to admire and protect nature’s beauty by stressing its gracious fragility. Federico Infante’s gauzy dreamscapes are both otherworldly and intimate, their realism so accurate it conjures déjà vu. Eric Roux-Fontaine’s verve pulses in his mystical compositions that encourage the potential found only in our dreams. Brian Keith Stephens can barely contain the exuberant emotions of his canvases; quirky characters parade and color splashes in ways that speak of the uncurtailed human experience and remind us to participate. Benoît Trimborn’s lush landscapes are minutely articulated odes to the timeless and unmitigated wonder of Earth’s forests, fields, and waterways.
