A private viewing of Arnold Toulon’s ‘Barmecide Feast’ will be held on January 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 pm at the Inner Gallery’s Bois D Orange located in St. Lucia. The exhibition continues until February 16 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Mondays to Saturdays.
“Things edible and delicious like in “SUGAR BABY and CARROT ATTACK” are juxtaposed with the human face or form, gravity is none existent as these organic edibles flirt, hover or surround the human element. Our environment and the things that nourish us seem to be at the ‘CORE’ of this series for Toulon’s new show. The fruits of the earth become the star players. An ambiguous light source highlights the drama of these pieces, bathing the main ingredients of these works in a surreal glow. One feels like literally taking a bite out of these canvases, or cranking up the stove with a waiting pot,” a press release about the exhibition states.
“Toulon’s versatility with different media and exceptional use of colour allows this artist the facility needed to render simple subject matter with a freshness and energy that quickly engages ones attention and palate. In this exhibition the artist, a former surrealist has revealed a little known aspect of his oevvre from the studio,” the press release also states.
Toulon hopes that the paintings will find their permanent place in the hotels, business places and homes, where the artwork can truly be appreciated in its “natural environment.”
