ALEX GARANT • CAROUSEL
Opening: June 7th - 29th, 2019
Arch Enemy is proud to present, Carousel. The show marks 4 years of Alex showing with Arch Enemy in Philadelphia, and her 2nd AEA exclusive solo exhibition. For the new collection Alex pushes her work to new levels, balancing expertly rendered and detailed portraiture and textiles, with interesting and appealing pattern-work and soft, muted backgrounds.
As a pioneer of Contemporary Figurative Op Art, and reining Queen of Double Eyes, her oil paintings offer a graphic quality combined with traditional portrait techniques. Garant establishes herself as one of the leaders of analogue Glitch Art by using patterns, duplication of elements, symmetry and image superposition as key elements of her imagery. Her paintings are a reflection on human duality, the battle for self-definition between one's inner self and outer persona.
