“Nicolas Dhervillers – Rétrospective Works” – Renowned French photographer chose Kansas City for his first U.S. exhibition

Private event for KCSCP and ASMP members
Sherry Leedy Gallery 2004 Baltimore, Kansas City,

My dear friend Philipp Eirich, who owns Cerbera Gallery in the crossroads, is an avid collector, curator and arts advocate.  He is bringing Nicolas Dhervillers to Kansas City for his first exhibition in the U.S. We are very excited to have him here.

We would like to invite all of you to join us and others in the photography community for a very first look, and to hear him speak a little bit about his work on Wednesday August 30th in Sherry Leedy Gallery, 2004 Baltimore.

The doors will open at 5.  Nicholas will speak at 6.  This is a fantastic opportunity to meet this wonderful photographic artist.

To see more of his work visit his website:  NICOLAS DHERVILLERS – Photography and Artwork

 

Nicolas Dhervillers’ (b. 1981) photographic works span from small still lives to monumental landscapes. In many of his images, theatre, cinema, painting and photography coalesce. Dhervillers’ scenes often pay homage to the great artists of the past, including Nicolas Poussin and Gustave Courbet. Other works use photographic processing to take the viewer into a fictional space outside of time. His landscape photography is subjected to a digital process adapted from the cinematic “day for night” technique, lending an eerie look to pictures taken in broad daylight. Archival figures are then placed within the landscapes and washed with unnatural digital light. Dhervillers has participated in Paris Photo and festival Mono, a documenta 13 event. His works can be found in private collections and museums around the world. This retrospective marks Dhervillers’ first exhibition in the United States.
