Kenne Gregoire is a Dutch painter who is showing his work in the U.S. for the first time in an exhibition that opens today at the Arcadia Gallery in New York.
(Note that the link given will change to the next current exhibition after 6/1/13. After that you may still be able to access the exhibition catalog on Issuu.)
Gregoire has several thematic areas in which he explores different approaches. The most prominent seems to be still life in which he uses a combination of isometric perspective and naturalistic rendering. This is contrasted with other still life subjects in which he takes a more straightforward approach.
There are other repeated themes, such as patterned backgrounds and figurative work that varies from naturalistic to stylized.
In all of his work he demonstrates a refined control of texture and color, usually casting his subjects in muted light and emphasizing their textural characteristics.
