POP-EPOQUE-OO

Screen print virtuoso, Chuck Sperry, is returning to Paris in person from California for a massive new exposition (300+ poster titles will be available) at l’Oeil Ouvert Gallery! Paris art lovers discovered Sperry at l’Oeil Ouvert at the end of 2013 and were seduced by his works and his muses.

Inspired and constantly exploring motifs as various as classical mythology, Art Nouveau, early 20th Century and early 1970′s typography, exploring the stars of the Rock universe, and the psychedelic 1960s, Chuck Sperry is able to impose his style upon all these various sources and inspirations. Share an evening with Sperry who crosses the Atlantic to share his world with an audience now enchanted by his talent.

Extolling femininity and the delicacy of floral motifs, the artist plays with the layering of materials, in a sensual intricacy that the eye can never completely resolve.

Whether the subjects of Sperry’s prints are queens of the first word (Alpha and Omega), or revolutionary warriors (Gogol Bordello), or indecisive Persephones (Widepsread Panic), or icons of Rock (Patti Smith), Chuck Sperry’s depiction of women truthfully represent figures deeply independent and sensual.

We admire the correctness of his representation of womanhood, the mastery of his technique, the beauty of this silkscreen work where each piece is limited in edition, signed and numbered, and Sperry’s labor is carried out manually by the artist himself in his studio in Oakland.
