Last Friday I worked the opening for Véronique Gambier's show at Trestle Gallery. Gambier's works are simple, rich in color, and openly reflect a fascination with form and shape. The calm and seemingly organized gesture of her paintbrush is enhanced by the vibrancy of the acrylic paints- thinly coating the canvases with a depth of layers.
Varying sizes of her work give individual degrees of confrontation between the painting and viewer. These works were easy to love. One can see pulled puddles of color, hidden accent colors, and a deep meditative quality that renders these works sincere and authentic.
Unfortunate that this show is only up through March 13th, but wonderful for those of us who had a chance to see this short show. Trestle Gallery is open Monday - Friday 11 - 6... if you'd like to make a quick dash over to Brooklyn to check out/buy these gorgeous works.
