GILLES CLEMENT GALLERY
June 1st - September 20th 2018
SUMMER GROUP EXHIBITION
Gilles Clement Gallery is pleased to present our latest collection of cutting-edge Contemporary, Pop, and Street Art that delights and inspires the viewer with iconic imagery, vivid colors, and culturally significant messages.
This rotating summer exhibition showcases an eclectic mix of artists working in a range of mediums and techniques including photography, painting, mixed media, collage, neon light and spools of thread. Featured artists include Curtis Cutshaw (oil enamel on birch), David Datuna (mixed media with optical lenses), Robert Mars (vintage collage and neon) and Kathleen Wilke (underwater photography). Introducing our new additions: Javier Martin, Spanish multidisciplinary artist whose "Blindness" series combines glamorous black and white portraits with colored strokes of neon light; and American installation artist Devorah Sperber, who utilizes thousands of spools of thread to create pixilated versions of iconic works of art which, when viewed through an optical device, convey a faithful image of the original painting.

Solo Exhibition - Illusions
Parisians now based in Westport, CT, Serge Clement and Marina Kamena have been making collaborative art in the contemporized spirit of Renaissance ateliers for over twenty years - a prolific body of work that reflects the couple’s relentlessly dynamic, creative and visionary approach. First joining their talents to recreate ten masterpieces for the French film Rembrandt (1999), they have worked in tandem ever since, represented by and exhibited at the Allan Stone Gallery in NYC, and co-authored a book “The Joy of Art” (Abrams 2001). Featured in the current show are a diverse range of paintings, sculpture and mixed media constructions that share the theme of illusion and perspective. The results are offbeat, clever works of enormous craftsmanship that outguess the viewer. As Kamena puts it, “Illusion is a means of testifying to life, of restoring what the artists have seen, and finally making something that intensely captures reality”.
March 9th - April 9th 2017
Opening Reception: March 9, 2017

He is most widely known for his Viewpoint of Millions series that explores the sources and meaning of cultural identity from each unique point of view. He has been critically acclaimed by museum curators and art critics worldwide as a precursor of his time.
Winner of the 2015 Raindance film Festival, and numerous other prestigious awards, presented by Gilles Clement gallery for the very first time to the public in a private showing in Greenwich on the night of the opening reception "Datuna: Portrait of America" (www.datunamovie.com) is the event not to be missed.
