Douglas Bourgeois

Spirit in the Dark takes its name from the 1970 gospel-tinged soul song by Aretha Franklin. Bourgeois describes the Spirit in the Dark as “a spark of hope, an electric connection to infinity and beauty, an infusion of protective grace, a spiritual and creative epiphany.” His long-established inspirations include Deep Soul and Gospel music, primitive rock and roll, vernacular religious imagery, and discarded paper ephemera. These inspirations are apparent in his meticulous figurative paintings featuring subjects in heightened landscapes or interiors, as well as in his collages, which are the foundation of this exhibition.

Troy Dugas

Balancing Act refers to an attempt to balance representation and abstraction. The evolved works include new geometric compositions as well as dynamic still lifes. Cut pieces of recycled papers glued down in layers create vibrating patterns that come together to reveal a unified image or design. Incorporating painting and drawing media in conjunction with the collage material loosens the visual impact of the work allowing moments of vulnerability, exploration, reflection, and refinement.

Dapper Bruce Lafitte

Although the subject matter has varied over the years – from marching bands to prizefighter Muhammed Ali in the ring – Dapper Bruce Lafitte’s style remains instantly recognizable. The colorful drawings in R.I.P. Bruce A. Davenport, Jr. | Artwork by Dapper Bruce Lafitte focus mainly on the city of New Orleans, and contain references to local people, schools, businesses, parks and institutions. As always, there are mentions and remembrances, callouts and criticisms scattered throughout. Read More

Edward Burtynsky

Intentional Landscapes is world-renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky’s second exhibition with the gallery. Burtynsky has spent his career traveling the world documenting waterfronts, farmlands, irrigation plots, rivers and various water maintenance systems – focusing mainly on landscapes where industry has transformed nature. The resulting images are meant as metaphors to the dilemma of our modern existence. Burtynsky states, “Our dependence on nature to provide the materials for our consumption and our concern for the health of our planet sets us into an uneasy contradiction.” Read More

Jonathan Mayers

L'Éparpillage is Jonathan “feral opossum” Mayers’ first exhibition with the gallery. Recent, small- to medium-scale, vibrant paintings depict metaphorical beasts amid meticulously rendered Louisiana landscapes. The mysterious creatures – somewhat wicked, somewhat charming – were born of the artist’s familiarity with Louisiana folklore, and serve to illustrate his opinion pertaining to the reality we live in. The haunting, curious images also address the current fragility of our ecosystem, most specifically the southern region of Louisiana. Read More

Read More and Eli Hansen

Read More and Eli Hansen are childhood friends who have been collaborating for decades. Just out of high school, they would fill up their trucks with various items and head to an isolated spot outside of town. Alone for the weekend, they’d construct a playground of “junk,” complete with lights and stereos. A few days later they’d clean everything up, erasing any trace of their outpost. Over the years, they’ve reconnected to recreate these weekends and this exhibition is the latest installment. The wrong way home. objectifies experimentation and investigation while juxtaposing inertia with action. Read More

Rob Wynne

The works in Rob Wynne’s second exhibition with the gallery reference the ability to grasp visual stimuli without consciously perceiving them. References to sleight of hand and magic are made tangible by the artist as he addresses issues of perception and the concept of seeing. His long-standing fascination with narrative is evident in the beautiful, transportive, and sometimes camp landscapes he creates for language. Read More
