Fine Art and Fine Wine with David Ouellette and Carrera Wine Cellar - Sat March 12th

David Ouellette

A Perfect Pairing! 

Venus Inverno
Amiro Art + Design Gallery will present an afternoon pairing Fine Wine and Fine Art with painter and lecturer, David Ouellette, in an artist’s talk on March 12th and a wine tasting with Carrera Wine Cellars.

Mr. Ouellette will discuss both technique and meaning of his non-objective enamel on canvas paintings. Also in his presentation, he will exhibit and discuss his never before shown impasto oils on canvas paintings, expressive in a similar, yet different manner than his liquid enamel. The difference is the texture, the similarity is the poetic use of color.

Philip Ball in his book, Bright Earth, notes: “No wonder philosophers and linguists so love to debate color - it tempts, and eludes them at the same time that it promises wonders and deep secrets.”  “If music be the food of love, play on.”  “We crown our lives with the gems of color.”

In the realm of the senses, color plays a meaningful role.  It can charge us or give us tranquility.  When many colors are orchestrated together, along with form and structure, texture and gesture, a statement, a sensation will have been achieved.
