Susan Inglett Gallery is pleased to present “Mind, Body & Soul,” an exhibition of recent work by gallery artist William Villalongo. A reception for the artist will be held Thursday evening, 10 September from 6 to 8 PM.
In William Villalongo's world of myth and allegory, images of Abstract paintings represent radical Modernisms while the "colonial gaze" is ever present. In the artist's hands, these paintings appear as masks sported by a clan of exotic brown women.
Paying tribute to the ornate stylings of the Late Baroque period, William Villalongol lfis his canvas with frolicking maidens, nymphs and satyrs. Wooded glades, iridescent pools, and leafy bowers set the stage for what were traditionally fanciful idylls. Villalongos’ tales however take place not in the time of Louis XV’s Regence debauchery but in our own present day equivalent.
