Salon 94 Bowery features Jules de Balincourt’s first solo show with the gallery, Ecstatic Contact, comprised of 6 new large-scale paintings. Known for his abstract and figurative paintings of utopian, dystopian and marginalized communities as well as American politics, de Balincourt breaks new ground in an exploration of collective global anxieties. In his studio, de Balincourt simultaneously paints up to 10 works. Without preparatory drawings, he intuitively moves from painting to painting, allowing one to influence the next. This new body of work addresses the uncertainties of contemporary human life. Ecstatic Contact will be on view until January 13, 2012 at Salon 94, 243 Bowery, New York, NY.
