Opening Reception For Joseph Adolphe

Gremillion & Co. Fine Art, Inc. says
The work featured in More Stories, Joseph’s second solo exhibition at Gremillion & Co. Fine Art, expands and further develops several concurrent themes the artist has been pursuing for a number of years. In addition to his massive landscapes featuring remnants of cloth suspended, almost frozen-- yet elusively also in motion, floating over expansive horizons.

In several recent works featuring familiar themes such as his bulls, Adolphe’s fascination with movement is inverted wherein the subject itself is still but the environment surrounding the subject is animated to an almost volcanic state. Adolphe makes explicit reference to this shift of focus in the work, also aptly titled, ‘Still Life 2.”

Adolphe’s painting technique reveals an incredible willingness to let the paint itself impress its own variegations on his work. Viewing many of his paintings up close, one can barely make out any subject at all but stepping a few feet away reveals to the viewer an amazing sense of clarity of form.
