Corinne Garese’s Figurative Paintings: Blending Classic and Modern Styles
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Corinne Garese in Sensorial Realities. The exhibition opens July 5, 2017 and runs through July 25, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, July 6 from 6-8 pm.
The figurative paintings, still lifes, and portraits by French artist Corinne Garese work to bridge the past and the future, as the artist skillfully blends classic artistic conventions and styles with decidedly modern elements. Each figurative painting is executed with a sense of elegance and detail, and a strong emphasis on decorative elements inspired by trompe l’œil. At the same time, her colors are luminous and compelling, often applied with a strong sense of contrast and dynamicism that speaks more to our post-modernist world.
A notable feature of Garese’s work is her use of texture and brushstroke to set a mood and create a unique blend of traditional and modern motifs within the work. The artist explains her approach as such: “The oil paints on canvas bear a rich texture that allows for light strokes of the brush, sometime vague and others more pronounced. The touches of a putty knife give energy and modernity to my style.” Indeed, Garese’s paintings serve to remind her viewers of simpler times, as they rediscover forgotten themes and artistic conventions. "I am looking for the link that connects us to our history and our environment before the great ecological ravages," she says.
Corinne Garese currently lives and works in the southwest of France in Bordeaux.

About the Exhibition
Agora Gallery's new group exhibition Sensorial Realities offers nine different voyages into new and challenging worlds. Among the paintings, mixed-media works, ceramics, and sculptures included, there are stimulating explorations of landscape, narrative, abstraction, and portraiture. One painter creates outdoor scenes out of a jungle of thick, unbroken brushstrokes that pulse with the loud colors of summer in bloom. Another builds quietly intense psychological scenes out of isolated figures. A third toggles between sensual realism and an abstraction that depends simply on the perspective zooming in and out. With such thoughtful technical experimentation and flawless execution, Sensorial Realities showcases artists operating at their smartest and most provocative level.
