Artist Spotlight: Lou Ros

Tache Gallery, which opened its doors this past December at 547 W 27th Street (between 10th & 11th Ave), has started off its Chelsea career with three strong exhibitions (Yuriy Ibragimov, Nikolai Bartossik, and Vasily Hapov). It appears that the trend will continue, as the forthcoming exhibition consists of a solo show by Parisian artist Lou Ros. The exhibiting artist provided art-chelsea with a description of what he will be showing at Tache Gallery, so read on...

Lou Ros @ Tache Gallery - March 24 - April 23, 2011.
Attend the reception on March 24, 6-9pm

Here is a description Lou Ros provided regarding the exhibition:
I will exhibit two series of my paintings, FACES and PAPER FACES, this is two series of portraits of my entourage I made in 2010/2011.

The relationship between the fixed image and movement really interests me. To captivate the eye by transforming the clear into a blur and the fixed into a movement is an active ingredient in my research. I paint in a very instinctive way, following the example of the expressionists who fascinate me. 

Through the colours, brush strokes, composition, background and rhythm of the painting, I attempt to create works which truly represent bodies in movement without distortion. Without having a clear idea of the final result, I stop my work before it seems finished. The moment where little is enough to suggest the structure interests me, leaving the spectator's imagination open at the moment the scene is starting to appear. 

Knowing when to stop before saying too much is what I tried to do.
-Lou Ros
