Cindy Lisica Gallery presents Emilie Duval: "Order from Chaos" opening reception
Cindy Lisica Gallery will host the solo exhibition of Houston-based French artist Emilie Duval. The artist has created a body of work that is both cerebral and visually delightful. Duval is a virtuoso of multi-layered painting, and she connects this studio practice with photography and mixed media, video and installation for her newest series, "Order from Chaos."
The artwork is vibrant in design, and exudes a intense energy resulting from a masterful and complex process. Duval addresses digital technology and explores both the natural order and the chaos forged by humans in her surroundings. She examines overarching issues of society and economy through her spirited representations of Digital Ledger Technology and the Federal Reserve, while making bold associations with Baroque period style, drama and excess. Duval also hones in on the local by incorporating images taken along the Bayou in Houston and combining them with the dazzling excesses implied by the use of gold in her work. This daring exhibition revisits the past and elegantly connects it with the present.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through May 27.
