Derek Eller Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Toronto-based artist André Ethier.

In his fifth show at the gallery, André Ethier contests the borders of irony and earnestness, combining self-deprecating humor with sincere appreciation for banalities and everyday strangeness. He approaches each work without a definitive subject in mind, he improvises the content and compositions, employing an array of application techniques to create luscious, painterly surfaces.  Evoking art historical precedents from Francis Picabia to Greek black-figure pottery, Ethier conjures intense imagery that is both uncanny and strikingly familiar.

André Ethier has had solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, Torino, Miami, Copenhagen, Toronto, and Madrid.  His work was recently featured in Fairy Tales, Monsters, and The Genetic Imagination, Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Nashville, TN and Portraits: Cabinet de Curiosités, galerie bertrand & gruner, Geneva, Switzerland, André Ethier and Janet Beckhouse at Neon Parc, Melbourne, Austrailia.
