Join us at Leon on Saturday, June 6th, from 7-10 pm for the closing reception of CAMP, an exhibition of new paintings by Rene Farkass.
On Exhibition May 9th, 2015 - June 7th, 2015
With a distinctive style that sets him apart in both tone and personality, Rene Farkass has been a recognized artist in the alternative Denver art scene for over 15 years.
Both Rene's drawing and painting styles are linear in nature, usually with an emphasis on a contoured, illustrative approach to the subject matter. The composition is usually stylized and incorporated in a loosely patterned color theme or in an appropriated text-based background.What fuels Rene as an artist is the daily practice of exploring and crafting beauty through a well-depicted figure and through the relationship the human form has with the shapes and negative spaces of text, sheet music, even cartography. Rene's personal definition of art is that it is a relationship. Art is also a discovery process, and every one of his pieces is created as a discovery of the human figure, human emotions, or human surroundings. It is a process of humans seeing themselves through the connections between creator and creativity, artist and artwork, painter and audience, and artwork and audience. All of these processes are in relationship with their surrounding physical, spatial and temporal environments.
