SOUTH FLORIDA BASED ARTIST
“A SUMMER NIGHT”
Thursday, July 17th
6 – 9 pm
340 NE 4 Street
DELRAY BEACH, FLORIDA
The AR Gallery at 340 NE 4 Street in Delray Beach, FL will open its doors to a summer group show, to include guest International Artist Brigitte Balbinot on July 17 from 6 – 9PM. The exhibit titled ‘A Summer Night’ will feature some of Balbinot’s latest works, including paintings from her most recent series Minority which was recently featured at the Cornell Museum of Art in Florida.
Swiss by birth, Brigitte Balbinot is now based in South Florida and travels regularly to the Province of Quebec where she also maintains an art studio. Her work, simple and complex all at the same time, reflects a minimalist approach. Each piece of artwork comprises 30-40 layers of oil paint. The use of various mediums allows the Artist to create rich textures and interesting visual affects that translate her unique vision onto the canvas.
In her statement, Balbinot says: “I favor abstract painting and use a minimalistic approach in my work. To me simplicity is about bringing order to complexity. When the work is streamlined, it enables the mind to expand. Only then can imagination happen. I love depth and textures; they remind me of what once was.”
Brigitte goes on to say, “The philosophy Wabi-Sabi from the Zen Buddhist culture that is centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection plays a definite role in my creative process. My paintings sometimes appear to be “scarred” and “worn”, survivors of a long journey having a story to tell… Working with oil paint, pigments and various mediums allow me to create a work that is rich in substance and interesting to look at. I prefer to work large as it creates a stronger focal point that captures the viewer’s attention.”
In a review by Carrie Turner, editor of Fine Art Views (March, 2013), art critic Brian Sherwin is cited, “The compositional structure and use of raw texture in Balbinot’s paintings allow the imagination of the viewer to decipher meaning based on what he or she brings, psychologically speaking, to the viewing experience”.
