Clover's Fine Art Gallery Cordially Invites You To
Opening Reception Thursday, Sept 12th 6-8 pm
Sept 7th 2013 – Nov 3rd 2013
CLOVER'S FINE ART GALLERY is proud to present Perspectives, a group show of five diverse artists – Catriona Herd, Jerry MC Georges, Carlton Murrell, Donovan Nelson and Nigel Pierre – whose works showcase their perspectives on life from a myriad of ways in which the artists perceive, construe and relate to life.
New York-based Scottish painter Catriona Herd paints landscapes from plein air sketches done all over the United States, Scotland and mainland Europe. Herd, who also paints the figure, spent the summer of 2013 on a painting scholarship at the Marchutz School of Fine Art in Aix-en-Provence, France.
Haitian-borned Jerry MC Georges encapsulate Haiti’s beauty, glory and pain in his dramatic oil on canvas portraits and landscapes from his homeland. If you look carefully at his pictures, you will see that he is creating stories for us, leaving us clues to the mystery of lives, and clues to the mystery of who lives there. MC Georges was part of a group of Haitian artists that presented a rebirth of Haiti through art after the earthquake in 2010.
Carlton Murrell’s portraits of landscapes and island lifestyle are rich in color and reflect the artist’s Caribbean heritage. Murrell grew up in Barbados and pursued formal education in the US. Great master impressionist painter Claude Monet had a tremendous influence in his painterly style. Murell’s layering of paints, short strokes and usage of color create powerful, thought-provoking visual images.
Donovan Nelson was born in Jamaica and currently lives in the blossoming art scene in Brooklyn. His oil on canvas paintings exposes the artist’s emotional response towards his subject. Nelson’s paintings are rich in color, texture and cultural heritage.
Working with water and acrylic colors, Nigel Pierre is a master of depicting the expressive quality of light. The resulting images are at once realistic, yet visionary and capture the freshness and excitement of the artist’s interpretation. Nigel is a native of Barbados.
Clover’s Fine Art Gallery is particularly committed to promoting a greater awareness and appreciation of the art and artists of the Caribbean.
