Quintessence by Eric Robitaille at Decorazon

Monday, July 8th, 2019

Quintessence is referred to as the fifth sense, and is the title of Eric Robitaille’s exhibition at DECORAZON NYC.  Celebrating the idea of beauty in its purest form, Robitaille demonstrates a unique combination of vibrant realism and modern abstract.

ERIC ROBITAILLE demonstrates a unique combination of vibrant realism and modern abstract. Building each painting using a very complex construction of high quality detailing and layers, the artist allows a large space for abstract process and flow. Eric Robitaille is a self-taught contemporary artist from Montreal, Quebec. He has shown works in several exhibitions across Canada, and is currently represented by galleries in Quebec and Ontario. He also enjoys meeting art buyers personally through independent fairs.

A contemporary artist from Montreal, Quebec, Eric Robitaille has a graphic design and illustration background.
Diverse animal and plant life play a large role in his recent series, primarily to symbolize human behavior and life mechanics. His animal subjects display human characteristics and virtues, while carrying messages of “being your best self”.

Through many years of experimentation, Eric Robitaille’s style has evolved from hyper-realism to a unique mixture of abstraction and surrealism. The distinctive integration of contrasting elements, graphic text, colours and layers result in creations that are visually intriguing and dynamic, but above all communicate to perfection the story and significance of each piece.

Exhibition on View: June 27 – August 24, 2019

Stephen Maine- Press Play – at ODETTA

Sunday, July 7th, 2019

ODETTA is pleased to present their second solo exhibition in our new Chelsea location – Stephen Maine- Press Play with supporting artworks by Ryan Sarah Murphy as our Flat File Feature Artist.

Through humble materials, and an exploration into gravity and printmaking, Stephen Maine, in Press Play offers an updated approach to gestural abstraction. On a monumental scale, Maine creates a playful system of applying paint to canvas that is simultaneously performance, Rube Goldbergian engineering, and “blind painting.” Employing traditional printmaking skills, like developing a registration system for applying multiple layers of color, but on a gigantic scale, the plates obscure his view of what is actually happening on the canvas. The resulting color-rich abstractions offer surprising nuances and associations with landscape and science, while toggling between macro and micro perspectives. In contrast, Ryan Sarah Murphy’s abstractions, featured in our Flat Files, decidedly coax the found packaging materials to interact with one another in unexpected, yet lucid ways. The mass produced, tossed out, eye-candy-colored shards and planes move Murphy to develop a grammar that presents bridges, overpasses, subway lines… the urban landscape.
