On her website biography, Elisabeth Piquet describes herself as a “modern nomad”. Born in Algeria, she’s lived in many places on the globe, and was living in St. Martin, when I first met her, and admired her paintings. I adore the very painterliness of her paintings. Exquisite in every way, they now reflect her life on the Britanny coast of France. We’ll be installing the exhibition on February 26th, and it will hang in the gallery until late March. As always, to see all the works in this exhibition, go the the “Artists” tab at the top of this page, and click on her name.
Alas, alas, alas…….. Time flies. I am VERY pleased and excited to be installing an exhibition of new paintings by Elisabeth Piquet next week. Elisabeth was living in St. Martin when the gallery first showed her works, and she now lives in the Brittany region of France. I shook my head in wonderment when I found this review from the St. Maarten newspaper, “The Daily Herald” today. 13 years…. Seems like yesterday, and it seems like a century ago.
………and a gentleman never asks”. My sweet Lola has been advising many of this adage this week, as she celebrates another birthday. Villa guests from Newport RI brought her a LOVELY gift when they arrived yesterday, and she was quite proud to wear it on her walk this morning, and whilst relaxing in the house………..
I was priviledged to have met the late great Haitian artist Louisiane St. Fleurant in her home in Petionville, Haiti. She remains a great in the Haitian art world, and I’m delighted to have this very fine 1990 painting of hers hanging in the gallery.
I love the contast that these two new Francis Eck paintings create. Both works are superb – one. “Equilibre”, using monochromatic greys and whites, and just a touch of colour to accent the entire painting, and the other, “Le Golfeur”, for it’s vivid, strong colours – a true “action painting”! Thanks for these Francis. As always to see them, and all his work at the gallery, go to ARTISTS at the top of this page, and click on his name on the gallery list.
How wonderful that during a period of one perfect sunny day after another, Jo-Anne Mason brought in her newest work, titled simply and perfectly “Perfect Sunny Day, Anguilla”. It’s a beautiful lushly painted landscape in oil, which really captures the essence of beauty here.
Even after all these years, I remain astounded at how some artists are nothing shy of alchemists. Mix oil and pigment, apply with brushes to canvas or linen, and paintings like this come to life. These canvases are reminiscent of some of the pastels that we exhibited a decade ago, when Michele first started showing with the gallery. They’re absolutely superb!
Oh me, oh my! Dinner last night (Thanks Elizabeth and Bob!!) at Hibernia was superb. It’s always a delightful evening, and last night’s choice, “Grilled Perigod Duck Breast, served with eggplant puree and shitake wonton,walnut wine sauce” was magnificent in every way. I adore the art gallery there too – HAS to be second best on Island………..
For years and years, Michele Lavalette created some of the most beautiful paintings of Anguilla and her native France, working away diligently in her romantic North Hill studio. Michele left the Island in 1994, and has been travelling since, while sending select works to Savannah Gallery. This week, Michele has returned for a visit, and brought with her a small group of spectacular paintings of Anguillian boats. As always, I’ll stop typing now, and let these beautiful works speak for themselves. To see the details, and all the new work, click on ARTISTS at the top of this page, then click on Michele’s section.
