A few pictures from this past Salon

    Stephen Felton has described his process of creating work as reflective not only of his emotions, but on the atmosphere of his actions, decisions and lifestyle. In this interview with art critic Timothee Chaillou, Felton breaks down his artistic process into an “ongoing development of a new language for painting that is a hundred percent documentary.” The strikingly minimalistic works of Felton have been created to be examined and understood as a whole, including the canvas, stretcher, paint, wall and floor of the room where they are being shown, instead of only two-dimensional symbolic images. Felton’s works speak loudly to the present atmosphere in painting, walking away from historical predilections. Within each piece, the instigating thought process can be experienced as the launch pad for the artist’s journey through the work. Each proceeding piece refines and deepens the language of Felton’s paintings. Astrid de Maismont

      This was my first gertrude salon and i will certainly come to more. it is a great idea; i am glad to have discovered you. i thought that the "conversation" between the curator and artist was more work (for everyone involved: artist; interlocutor and audience) than it was worth. i would have preferred, in the end, a more directed discussion of the artist's work, even if that meant a more old-fashioned lecture-ish mode of presentation.

      Amazing evening! thanks again. some microphones might have been appropriate maybe for the half-deaf like me ;)

      Gertrude's new offices are great. light, airy, spacious and full of super art. a really inspiring work environment.
