Jean Jacobs Gallery presents: Michael DesRosiers – In Plain sight
May 7 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
New Canaan, CT— Jean Jacobs Gallery is pleased to present Michael DesRosiers: In Plain Sight opening reception on Saturday, May 7th, 2022 from 6pm-9pm at 84 Main Street New Canaan, CT 06840.
In Plain Sight chronicles an unexpected equilibrium between the artist’s experience in nature and his accumulative knowledge of the materials and processes he uses to create his work. As is clearly seen, DesRosiers does not attempt to replicate a particular natural observation, rather he distills his perception to reflect what is an interrelated fabric of concurrent events. It is by synthesizing the layered colors and textures that are so eloquently expressed by nature, DesRosiers produces a nonobjective sensibility unique to him.
Assembled as they are In Plain Sight, DesRosiers’s works exemplify a personalized artistic handwriting, a cursive drawn from his experience as a painter, one often written in rich color and one that utilizes intricate complex patterns. DesRosiers repeatedly asks us to see what is plainly before us, stripped of any narrative circumstance. In the painterly realm of Michael DesRosiers, the act of making art becomes for him a conversational equivalency, a direct dialogue between nature’s lexicon and the physicality of his practice.
We welcome all ages to join our Opening Reception – Saturday, May 7th, 2022 from 6pm – 9pm at the Jean Jacobs Gallery – 84 Main Street, New Canaan, Connecticut 06840.
