A Fine Art Exhibit at Corridan Gallery featuring:
James-Paul Brown, Ken Christensen, Kathleen Elsey and Sarah Carr
May 3 through June 18, 2016
Corridan Gallery is very pleased to present "Four Fauves in California", an Exhibit of Fine Art by James-Paul Brown, Ken Christensen, Kathleen Elsey and Sarah Carr. Curated by William Fedderson, this show includes works by these accomplished artists in the inspiring Fauvist Style, rarely seen in Santa Barbara.
"Les Fauves" is French for "The Wild Beasts". The Fauve Artists of the early 20th century, known for their wild brushwork and brilliant color were a sensation in the halls of French Art. Chief among this group were Henri Matisse, Andre Derain, Maurice de Vlaminck, Henri Manguin and Albert Marquet.
"Pathway Through the Magice Forest"
by James Paul Brown
The "Four Fauves in California" may not be considered "Wild Beasts", but they have caught the spirit of these French Masters. The "New Fauves" group, founded by Ken Christensen, includes Kathleen Elsey as a member. They are a group of bold painters committed to propagating the style of the great French Fauve painters. James-Paul Brown and Sarah Carr have come upon a Fauvist Style of painting independently of the "New Fauves" group, but their work is no less compelling. These painters are not afraid of color, their Fauvist style is powerful, important and frankly, a lot of fun to view.
