Known for his rich color expression, crisply focused energy, and impeccable line suggestive of a bygone era. J Louis’s appreciation of life and love are revealed in his selection of pose, subject, and hue. – Shain Gallery
On July 12th, artist J. Louis’ latest art show arrived at the Shain Gallery in Charlotte’s Myers Park neighborhood. The art show will be on view though the end of the month, so if you love the vibrant abstracts figures that J Louis creates, then this is definitely a show that you will want to check out.
We visited the gallery on the weekend after opening, and as with every J Louis show there were plenty of red dots on next to the paintings throughout the gallery. Out of all of the paintings displayed in the gallery, the painting titled, ‘The Arc’ was my favorite. The features of the figure in this painting are so calm and serene and I love the color palette that J Louis used for this particular piece.
Another close favorite, and the largest work featured in the show at 60×60 is titled ‘The Bridge.’
