Force of Nature 1

Nov. 10 - 19, 2005

Proud exponent of his Creole origins, Angelbert Metoyer presents five new paintings on canvas and paper in New York. People are standing in front of a shattered landscape, driven onto the higways toward flat horizons. Is there a return from exodus? Angelbert tells us that this has always been, is prefigured in his paintings, and that his art reckons with the force of nature. "There is nothing wrong with being a serious man" (Nancy Kienholz in conversation with the artist).
