Opens on September 4th in Paris at Galerie

What May will be starting on Saturday and
running though October 16th. If you are in Paris or know anyone there
please drop by. Vernissage Sept 4, 18.00-21.00.
L.J. is pleased to present Figments by American Artist
Brendan Monroe. The exhibition will mark the artist's second solo
show in France.
Brendan Monroe's universe is populated with characters and landscapes
reflecting the depths of his subconscious. His aim is to recreate
a place of solace and escape from reality, while holding onto the
humanness of a thought. This imaginary world is presented as a
novel experience and designed to be seen as if it were a series
of thoughts or dreams. It is a place that is always evolving and
characters are constantly stepping on and off stage. His characters
are part element and part human. For example, anonymous humanoid
forms in which each might reflect a different emotional quality
more strongly than the other; a hidden desire or confidence to
explore. This escape from reality is a peace of mind that carries
with it an edge of unfamiliarity and mystery.
Brendan Monroe continues to explore his own mental world which
takes the form of certain abstraction, contemplative and serene.
Small agencies of molecular acorns or potatoes and not as present
but the spotlight is on vast lunar landscapes and stringy rivers
Brendan and his wife, artist Evah
Fan, have recently moved to Stockholm, Sweden where they continue
careers as artists and illustrators. Monroe received his B.F.A.
from Art Center College of Design in 2004. He is co-represented
by Faye Fleming & Partner in Geneva,
Switzerland and Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica, California,

follow up interview on their site.
