Yechel Gagnon - Print

Yechel Gagnon, Manifestation, 2008, digital print, 35" x 17.5"

Vantage Art Projects is excited to announce Manifestation by Yechel Gagnon as the sixth edition in the first FRESH PICKS volume! Manifestation is a digital work that was created during a residency at Sagamie, The National Research for the Contemporary Digital in Quebec and developed as an edition especially for FRESH PICKS.

About this edition, Gagnon states:
"This work is significant because it incorporates all the different facets of my work by creating a dialogue between my bas-reliefs, the drawings and prints but within the digital realm. This image consists of images of nature, integrated with my carved plywood textures and then I've digitally drawn over the images. This digital work becomes an extension to my practice and is the only one that exists of this series."

Manifestation is a unique opportunity to collect an image from Yechel Gagnon that is an exclusive release from her archive. To inquire abou this project, click here.

Paul Fenniak in New York

Paul Fenniak, a good friend of mine, will be showing in New York in the coming weeks at the Forum Gallery. If you are in the area, this is really worth seeing. Paul's work, like all good paintings, most be seen in person to be truly appreciated. His handling of paint is rich and compelling, placing him among the best realist painters.
