Au bout du monde 54 x 58

Exhibition Dates:  October 03 – January 9, 2016

Solo Exhibition by Andre Desjardins


Monarch|Arredon Contemporary is pleased to present Andre Desjardins in his solo exhibition at the Gallery. California Dreaming is a collection all inspired by the blue skies and warm days of the Southern California lifestyle.

Desjardins’ paintings often feature faces— androgynous and nonracial—that display complex emotions. The essence of life emerges with every stroke of Desjardins’ brush, every texture and nuance, transforming the empty canvas into a statement about the mysteries of life, love and our universe itself. The heavily textured backgrounds, loose lines and generous use of color direct the viewer away from the physical reality of the subject and into a contemplation of the emotion portrayed.

Desjardins: California Dreaming Extended through January 9th, 2016! Owners Elsie and Danny Arredondo invite existing and prospective collectors to stop by the gallery at their convenience for a curated private visit.

Monarch | Arredon Contemporary is open from 10:30am to 6:30pm Tuesday – Friday and from 11:00am to 5:00pm on Saturday.  By appointment on Sundays and Mondays.
