This event has ended.

Axelle presents its “Best of Axelle” summer group show. The show will feature works by Quentin Garel, Eric Roux-Fontaine, Goxwa and Hollis Dunlap.

French sculptor Quentin Garel is well known internationally for his distinctive bronze animal busts and skulls. Axelle is proud to present several large-scale bronze works and charcoal preparatory drawings. Garel begins his artistic process with huge charcoal drawings; these offer insight into his creative and meticulous planning. Afterwards, he carves his animal busts or skulls in wood or Styrofoam, which he uses to cast limited edition bronze sculptures. Axelle will also show one of his unique, large woodcarvings. The patinas are exceptional as the works appear to be made of actual wood or bone.
Born in 1975 in France, Garel received 5 prestigious awards for drawing and sculpting between 2001 and 2005 from institutions including the Académie des Beaux-Arts, Paris and the Salon de Mai, Paris. Garel has been commissioned for several notable public installations, including a series of sculptures in the Public Gardens in Lille. He has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions, and his work appears in public and private collections throughout the U.S. and Europe. He currently lives and works in Normandy, France.

New works by Eric Roux-Fontaine will also be on display. French mixed-media painter Roux-Fontaine’s solo exhibition last year at Axelle Soho was a huge success. In fact, one of his paintings was used as inspiration for a line of clothing for the high-end Aventures des Toiles. Roux-Fontaine was also asked to commission a series of posters for performance at the Célestins Theatre in Lyon, France. He is known for his whimsical, often celestial, works made with pure pigment, marble powder and resin.

Maltese artist Goxwa has established a large following over the past few years. Her encaustic (oil and wax) figurative and still life works blend contemporary and ancient techniques to create highly distinct works on canvas.

Hollis Dunlap’s beautiful figurative works and female nudes continue to draw attention. A Vermont native, Dunlap studied at the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts in Connecticut. Dunlap’s understanding and handling of the relationship between light and the human body is particularly noteworthy.
