Overexposure | Miami is a solo exhibition by French artist Julien Graizely. This body of work is a result of WOFA Artist-in-Residence Program that the gallery launched this summer where Graizely is its first participant. The exhibition is comprised of mixed media paintings and drawings.
“Overexposure | Miami” is a reflection of South Florida through the eyes of a French artist: his memories, the moments in time that he experiences, random every-day encounters that he catches with his camera, significant and not, which he then transfers and intertwine into his paintings. Each work is like a capsule, like a memory box. Graizely plays with space, time, and composition, which he masters and diverts by a vigorous and free gesture. From paintings to delicate drawings with infinite lines that remain the contrast, the light and the vibration. The characters in his works are sketched fast, without precision or focus on details. The artist typically starts with a landscape and then includes people one by one.
The exhibition opens to the public on August 31, 2019, with a brunch reception from 12 till 4 p.m. The artist will be present during the opening. The show remains on view through October 15, 2019.
