Robert Thiebaud: Creating a dreamlike poetry
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of Condesa, Gouvieux artist Robert Thiebaud in Plurality of Expression. The exhibition will open on January 21, 2017 and run through February 10, 2017 with an opening reception on Thursday, January 26 from 6-8 PM.
In Robert Thiebaud’s paintings, a sharp eye for line, color and proportion is used to create what the artist calls a “dreamlike poetry.” Working in oils on wood and canvas, Thiebaud balances tones and textures to give each image a clarity and sense of physical presence that renders their enigmatic settings powerful and compelling. Trained as an architect, the artist makes use of architecture’s sense of structure and form in his artwork as well. With a palette that blends cool, dark shades with glimmering hints of warm colors, he emphasizes the purity and elegance of the line in his paintings, bringing balance and harmony to even the most surreal environment.
As adept at capturing the human form in vivid, realistic detail as he is at giving even a seemingly monochromatic background depth and dimension, he creates paintings that make his distinctive world feel totally real to the viewer, while also suggesting the mysteries that lie beneath the surface. “I am interested in going beyond appearance,” he says, “to have my characters lost in infinity.” Thiebaud lives and works in France.

About the Exhibition
The Many Worlds in "Plurality of Expression"
Agora Gallery is pleased to present Plurality of Expression, a new group exhibition highlighting the incredible diversity of visual language that the human mind is capable of creating. Seven artists are featured, among them painters, sculptors, photographers, and interdisciplinary artists. The group hails from a wide range of places including Peru, Romania, and Canada, and their far-flung origins influence their work in unexpected ways. Instead of any one artist creating pieces in a traditional or characteristic style of their home, this group represents the ever-increasing globalization of our world. Each artist shows knowledge of old and new techniques, and local and foreign aesthetics. Influences are cherished, but they are also interrogated and pushed further. Information travels quickly in the art world.
The strength of Plurality of Expression lies in just how different its featured artists are. One painter creates meticulously realistic tableaux of utterly fantastic landscapes - a road floating over an endless sky, or an egg that has sprouted its own feather. Another artist creates digital photographs exploring the nature of femininity through wondrously tactile liquids and fabrics. Yet another makes jewel-toned paintings of flat, serpentine figures, and another makes infinitely layered visions of the cosmos.
