Henri Paul Broyard
Visiting Artist Lecture
NEW DATE: Friday, March 20, 6–7pm
MECA&D, Osher Hall, Second floor
Free and open to the public
Henri Paul Broyard’s engagement with the interior scene as framework for painterly experimentation. Broyard collects photographs from thrift shops, flea markets, and cast-off design magazines, often cropping them or removing figures to generate an initial pictorial situation. Within this structure, Broyard creates zones of abstraction that are alternately improvisatory and deliberate, working until portions of the picture may be unrecognizably distorted or transformed. Henri Paul Broyard received a B.F.A. in Drawing and Painting from the California College of the Arts in 2013. He attended the Klasse Peter Doig at the Kunstakademie, Dusseldorf, in 2014. His work has been included in exhibitions at: SOLA Art Gallery, Los Angeles; the School of Painting Hangzhou, China; Tom Dick or Harry, Dusseldorf; 41 Cooper Square Gallery, New York; Haphazard Gallery, Los Angeles; and 119 Essex Street, New York. His work has been featured in Surface and Studio Visit magazines. Broyard lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
