On Saturday, September 16th, 2017, Booth Gallery is pleased to present “Anomalies: Lines, Forms, Textures” a solo exhibition featuring astonishing new works by Eric Lacombe. The exhibition is a culmination of new works, which highlight the many facets of imperfections and their societal perceptions.
The term “anomaly” is defined as something that deviates from what is standard, normal, or expected. Quite suitably, Lacombe’s “anomalies” portray the imperfect deviations that ostracize his subjects into a haunted world. The “imperfect” and experimental process that birthed this new collection of work reflects who Eric Lacombe is as an artist, as well as those who find resonance with his creations. Like many of us, his anomalies are seeking new information on who their true personas might be. Lacombe portrays this fragility by building thick textures of varying form around hollow, melancholic eyes that stare woefully in question at the viewer. His works incorporate blueprint-esque symbols within his imagery, lending varying analyses to his subject matter and his process. Some pieces incorporate this technique to help illustrate missing components, lending thought to feelings we may measure as commonplace and the emptiness we sometimes habitually exhibit on our stone-cold faces.
