Exposition / exhibition

Saturday 16 January 2010

I have been invited to exhibit my work for the first time, in a gallery in Bordeaux. Its owner, Daniel Boulogne, is a remarkable man who has supported artists in various and amazing ways during his life, and I was honored that he accepted to lend me his walls for a month.

The space is small but wide enough to contain 7 of my canvas. I had them framed for the occasion, so that they look cute for their first night out ! In particular, the exhibition will showcase "Tears of joy in the garden of giants", a painting started in 2005 and that I finished only a couple weeks ago.

Lucky french-speaking persons could have a look at the wonderful press release that my friend Leila Joucla (who is a Doctor of Arts) wrote :
Press release - exhibition Zancan - 28.01.10 - 02.03.10

Though most unlikely to happen I'd be thrilled to meet one of the foreigners at the inauguration, that will be held on Thursday, January 28th at Galerie 22 Rive Gauche in Bordeaux, France !

Congratulations and a warm hug! Nothing would make me happier than to see your work up close as well, but I live in the Caribbean! Receive all my love and support. :)

It will be a huge success! Please share photos with us if you can!!!

Michael, we love your work--it's innovative, unique, spiritual and earthy at the same time, full of incredible talent, masterful. May this be the first of many shows!
All the best to you from fans in Tucson, Arizona.

Je vous découvre il y a quelques instants au journal régional. Mon mari et moi sommes admiratifs devant un tel talent. La douceur, l'imaginaire, les couleurs, l'ambiance de vos toiles nous ont saisis.
Si d'aventure nous devons aller à Bordeaux (nous sommes à 30 km mais pas très...urbains), nul doute qu'une visite à la galerie 22 s'imposera naturellement.
Quoi qu'il en soit, je conserve précieusement l'adresse de votre blog dans mes favoris.
Vous avez un talent immense. Ne vous lassez pas de l'explorer.

Je tenais à vous remercier pour l'invitation à votre exposition!
Je ne pourrai malheureusement pas y aller, n'habitant pas assez près... Cela m'aurait vraiment plu de pouvoir admirer vos toiles plus en détail! Je me contenterai des versions numériques :)

Tous mes encouragements pour la suite, puissiez-vous encore longtemps nous offrir ces images oniriques!
