JF Lauda: Pimps and Fishmongers

April 05, 2013 - April 30, 2013
VSVSVS Gallery is proud to open its 2013 programming with montréalais JF Lauda in the exhibition Pimps and Fishmongers. This show features selections from an extensive series of new works.  It is also his first solo show in Toronto and we are stoked. The show is presented in sequence, relishing in the details of repeating and interlocking elements, rhythm and tone. The paintings are perfectly content to refine the basic units, colour, form and texture. Like some elegant math equation (studio-made math is rough around the edges) it is subtle and sincere, and confidence in simplicity is touching.

These words are inadequate; the paintings are better.
