Didier Hamey, Les Bonhommes opening exhibition Friday January 11, 2019 6-9 PM

Didier Hamey, Ahunza, Drypoint on Velum, 12 3/5"x11", 2015.

Didier Hamey is born in 1962 in Dunkerque (north of France) and is graduated from Saint Luc, Tournai (Belgium) and from the prestigious Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris.

During his studies in Paris, Didier Hamey made the acquaintance of drawing, cutting objects and materials, he then decided not to follow sculpture or painting studies but to embrace drawing and etching.

Being born in Dunkerque means being born to carnival, festivals, music, dance, weird little personae, amusement, feast. Naturally, Didier Hamey has been inspired by this carnival, which origins came back from the 17th century (an ordinance dated from January 16, 1676, gave the rules to the carnival) when men went fishing in Iceland. Before leaving for 6 months, the men celebrated nights and days, with friends and family in case they died during their work.

It is not only the well-known carnival in Dunkerque that has inspired its mysterious and oneiric art full of poetry but his love for nature and especially nature and animals.
During his one-year residency at the Casa Velasquez in Madrid, Spain, Didier Hamey discovered new carnival characters taking their roots in the country history and nature. He then created new meticulous and detailed lines of drypoint works in a series titled “Les Bonhommes”.

His savoir-faire is peerless therefore his works are collected by institutions and museums including the Fond National d’Art Contemporain, Museum of Dreux, la Bibliothèque Nationale, le Musée de la Gravure de Gravelines. He also has realized the illustration of the annual report of the Banque de France.

CONTROL AND COOPERATION WORK STATEMENT

In the series Control and Cooperation , Joelle McTigue examines the rituals of gardening and the creation of public spaces that represent how a community wants to be viewed. The work responds to the history of each public space and how it embodies the power dynamics of practical, leisurely, and spiritual pursuits. Restructuring the landscapes, McTigue transforms close-up snapshots into aerial botanical gardens. Control and Cooperation addresses the constant movement of how perception can change. McTigue lives and works in Montenegro

CONTROL AND COOPERATION WORK STATEMENT

In the series Control and Cooperation , Joelle McTigue examines the rituals of gardening and the creation of public spaces that represent how a community wants to be viewed. The work responds to the history of each public space and how it embodies the power dynamics of practical, leisurely, and spiritual pursuits. Restructuring the landscapes, McTigue transforms close-up snapshots into aerial botanical gardens. Control and Cooperation addresses the constant movement of how perception can change. McTigue lives and works in Montenegro

Celeste Cooning, Milk and Honey

Celeste Cooning, Milk and Honey

Celeste Cooning

The M.F.A. painting program at University of Washington led Celeste Cooning to Seattle. A decade later, she is best known for creating large-scale, ethereal installations. Aside from various exhibitions, her work adorns city parks, storefronts, special events, and the stage.

2013 marked the transformation of Cooning’s signature cut paper aesthetic into a permanent outdoor sculpture through 1% for Public Art. Bounty functions as a threshold for Jackson Park Perimeter Trail in Seattle’s Pinehurst neighborhood. The stylized, ornate fronds harken to the verdant beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

Cooning was the first Artist in Residence at Amazon Corporate with an installation in their Bigfoot building. More of the artist’s works are on view at Starbucks Headquarters, Theo Chocolate and Harborview Medical Center.

A pervading interest in pattern and repetition led me to explore cut paper. The medium facilitates a particular response to material, shape, light, and space. My studio practice encompasses site-specific installations that inhabit public and private, interior and exterior spaces. Light actively engages the work with vivid color, reflective qualities, and dynamic, cast shadows. The pattern-based and sometimes ornate compositions, often begin as a series of hand-cut paper constructions and then transformed into large-scale installations that emphasize texture, rhythm, and light. These sensorial experiences are meant to provoke visceral responses. It is within these sensational moments that we become curious, hopeful and inspired.

Celeste Cooning

The M.F.A. painting program at University of Washington led Celeste Cooning to Seattle. A decade later, she is best known for creating large-scale, ethereal installations. Aside from various exhibitions, her work adorns city parks, storefronts, special events, and the stage.

2013 marked the transformation of Cooning’s signature cut paper aesthetic into a permanent outdoor sculpture through 1% for Public Art. Bounty functions as a threshold for Jackson Park Perimeter Trail in Seattle’s Pinehurst neighborhood. The stylized, ornate fronds harken to the verdant beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

Cooning was the first Artist in Residence at Amazon Corporate with an installation in their Bigfoot building. More of the artist’s works are on view at Starbucks Headquarters, Theo Chocolate and Harborview Medical Center.

A pervading interest in pattern and repetition led me to explore cut paper. The medium facilitates a particular response to material, shape, light, and space. My studio practice encompasses site-specific installations that inhabit public and private, interior and exterior spaces. Light actively engages the work with vivid color, reflective qualities, and dynamic, cast shadows. The pattern-based and sometimes ornate compositions, often begin as a series of hand-cut paper constructions and then transformed into large-scale installations that emphasize texture, rhythm, and light. These sensorial experiences are meant to provoke visceral responses. It is within these sensational moments that we become curious, hopeful and inspired.
