For Immediate Release
NEW YORK, NY – Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature French-born artist, Olivier D, in The Substance of Abstraction. The exhibition is scheduled to run from June 4, 2011 through June 25, 2011 (opening reception: Thursday, June 9, 2011).

About the Artist
With a delicacy verging on photorealism, the marks made by painter Olivier D become whirling, dripping orbs, as strokes of paint in indigo, burnt umber, crimson and teal bounce and zip about the canvas. These energetic watercolor and acrylic works employ shades of geometric abstraction alongside found materials including seaweeds, seashells, sand and beach waste. Waste and waste treatment in relationship to the natural environment is an ongoing concern that manifests itself multifariously in an artistic oeuvre that is notably marked by rebellion. A self-declared nomad who grew up as a French child of mixed heritage, Olivier D’s works are a study of border territories – he is interested in the hierarchical structure of psychic, social, physical and metaphysical boundaries that govern autonomy and will.

Born in 1963 in France, Olivier D was initially in the business of screen-printing. In 2006 he returned to his true love of art after being inspired by Catalan artists while living in Barcelona, Spain. He currently resides in the Dominican Republic.
