Thierry B.

A Passion for Joyous Art. Thierry B. is like his art - colourful and passionate. To this is added a European elegance and social charm for which the French are so noted. To sum up his work in a few words is not an easy task. Yet, if you look at the man and listen to the artist, you are immediately impressed by his enthusiasm and passion for art. It is this creative passion and an enveloping search for joy and harmony that expresses itself so readily in all his art. David Thomas Fine Arts. Melbourne Australia

Michel CANETTI

Canetti Chic. Michel Canetti, in his exhibition at the Thierry B Gallery, moves from fashion plates to canvases of elegance and style, celebrating feminine beauty and appeal. His approach is disarming, direct, and minimal, capturing good looks and alluring charms in a few deft strokes of the brush. His underlying touch of eroticism is as delicate and enticing as traces of perfume of exquisite and bewitching bouquet. Such skills and approach are to be expected, for Paris-born and design-graduate of the Sorbonne Canetti has long been a master in the field of fashion. At the peak of a twenty year-plus career, he is acclaimed as one of France’s leading fashion illustrators, his images enlivening the pages of the leading European magazines, of Elle, Vogue and Le Figaro. The range of prestigious clients is awe-inspiring – Diana Ferrari, Guerlain, Chanel, Givenchy, De Beers – to mention a ransom few. On the finer art side, he has exhibited in Paris, Zurich, Hamburg, Singapore, Sydney and Melbourne, where he has been living since 1997. For his paintings, his focus is usually the face, a make up of eyes, lips and noses crowned with short hair styled or long and loose, rendered with an expressionist verve that whispers of playfulness and moments of exquisite passion. While all is very chic and reminiscent of high fashion glamour, the creativity behind his gestures of paint deals clever insights into the feminine and the eternal fascination of her charms. Although the paintings have been given individual women’s names, they are not portraits. The only exception he ever made was Catherine Deneuve, the, epitome of French elegance and film star pinup of every thinking man. This exhibition presents Angele, Monique, Bridgette, Dani and Appolonia, appealing names, which, Canetti explains, correspond to the face and character portrayed. Although their genesis may have been in fashion photographs, the results are his creativity, his engaging minimalist style being the synthesis of experience. The colour range is limited with neutrals of black, white and a seductive grey predominating. They provide the ideal counterpoint for the passionate reds, of lips exclusive and parted. The combined effect is anything but neutral. Beguiling, sensuous lines engage and delineate the allure of the female, decorative enticement the veneer of attractive and ensnaring character. There are also the occasional three-quarter length figures like Monique, the fashion model of suggestive look and gloved gesture, fashionables of flowing gowns and drop earrings. The recent introduction of red, and occasionally orange, as background represents a major shift to the more passionate, as in the close up of the sultry Renee, and Antonia of the disarmingly direct look. Pink lips on red. Canetti is a master of the modish. Effervescent as champagne, his paintings invite your participation and pleasure. David Thomas Fine Arts.

James Robertson

A World Of Striking Realism. Nothing has a single meaning, and the paradox of simplicity lies in its complexity. So it is with the paintings of James Robertson, who delights in images of diarming directness, readily accessible in their striking realism, yet given a twist or bite that turns a smile into laughter, and then a lot of after thought. In the plethora of visual images of this contemporary world, Robertson's paintings fascinate through their extraordinary illusionism - so real that they seem to reach beyond reality and, through their hightened perception, create a world of their own.

Michelle BRETON

Michelle Breton: Confidence of Exploration. There is a maturity of handling and a confidence of exploration in the paintings of Michelle Breton that are beyond her years as a painter, for this is only her second solo exhibition. More than just the painter lies behind her creative experience, Breton having spent many years in the theatre and on television. You have to be sure of yourself to step on stage, and this assurance can be seen and felt in her recent paintings. But why change from the stage on which to sport, for canvas - from the very public to the very private? Breton says that she always felt that there was something more she wanted to do, so she tried painting and sculpture. That did it. She fell for painting in a big way and hasn't stopped. And the freedom and pleasure she gets from painting is there to share.
