Delhomme show in NYC
June 18, 2014 by FIG
Currently showing in NYC is a Jean-Philippe Delhomme solo exhibition, Late Modern to Used Cars at Wright’s; the Auction House from Chicago with a gallery in Madison Avenue.
Works on paper are shown with works on printed matter.
The works on paper are from a series called The Visitors – large scale oil pastel works featuring Delhomme’s usual cast of characters drawn from the world’s of art, fashion and cool culture. The works on printed matter are from a body of work called The Brooklyn Rail Paintings. The Brooklyn Rail is a not for profit New York journal concerned with art, theatre, film and politics and all things in-between. On the journal’s pages in acrylic (not gouache) Delhomme paints pictures inspired by the abandoned signs, billboards, metal scrap yards, auto-bodies and dismantled engines on the cracked sidewalks found around his Brooklyn studio.
First Haines, now Delhomme. Kids… draw and paint over text. It’s cool!
For more from the world of Delhomme, check out his New York travel book for Louis Vuitton where his talent is given free reign to explore the city, which outside of Paris, he is most closely associated with. Watch the video here.
Late Modern to Used Cars runs from June 19th to August 23rd. For further information visit http://www.wright20.com/exhibitions/2014/6/delhomme/
