Masquerade Featuring Nicholas Harper
October 29th – November 27th.
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, October 29th from 7-11pm.
The Rogue Buddha Gallery and l'etoile magazine invite you to join us on Friday, October 29th for the opening reception for Nicholas Harper's new solo exhibition, Masquerade. Veil yourself behind a mask and mingle amidst classy gals and dapper gents while perusing Harper’s femme noir paintings under dimmed lights and the glow of candles. Decadent costumes and secret identities are encouraged!
Harpers haunting portraits offer a glimpse into the human psyche of desire and denial, aspiration and solitude. Alluring heads perched high atop elongated necks mark the divine within us all and our potential for enlightenment while gnarled hands and disembodied arms signify earthly realms and the wish for something more. Ornate backgrounds speak of the past and what once was while darkened eyes beg questions of the soul.
Likened to Byzantine and Russian Icons of the past, Harper aims to reach for more in his work than ornamentation, rather, choosing that they be points of reflection and central to ones every day life.
A number of new paintings will be displayed along with a few older favorites.
Supported by l'etoile magazine and the Minnesota Opera's young patron's group, Tempo.
Music provided by Danny Sigelman
Bonus: Extend your Halloween weekend Saturday night at the Minnesota Opera for the opening night of Cinderella, followed by a Masquerade Ball with Tempo and l'etoile at Sakura Restaurant. For special rate tickets and more info visit www.letoilemagazine.blogspot.com
