Exquise Relecture - Sebastien Bayet


On view: 6 November - 21 November 2015

We invite you for the Opening Preview : Sunday 8 November 3-5 PM 

Rize Gallery Amsterdam is pleased to announce her second solo exhibition with new works by French artist Sebastien Bayet, entitled 'Excuise Relecture -.  This means a soft revisit of known work, the masterpieces from well known artists as, amongst others, Velazquez, Manet and Pollock.

"It gives me the chance to make a new interpretation on the canvas. These artists inspired countless artists and were interpreted by many ( including Picasso.) So I set up my technique at the service of the great work, as if the canvas rises from the earth like a sarcophagus ".

A recurring theme in his works are skeletons and the cross. Bayet works with skeletons because when we dig in the earth we find back and study the skeletons. His paintings are like archeological excavations in which we find the mise en scene of what is left behind by the great artists a long time ago.

It will be on view at the Rize gallery from November 6th – Nov  21st, 2015. An opening reception will be held on Sunday October 8th from 3-5 PM. We hope to welcome you!
