MISE EN ABYME
Through March 19, 2011
In Mise en Abyme Laval returns to a favorite
subject, the swimming pool. Figures and light shimmer in large-scale
painterly tableaux. The palate is saturated rendering our sensation
dreamlike and the tone of the work moves fluidly between representation
and abstraction, real and surreal. Smaller reflection pieces invert and
push us between sensations, orientations, and states of mind.
