Valyntina Grenier a solo show at G Gallery
Saturday, February 4, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Hello, I am Valyntina Grenier, a lesbian artist. I will be having my first Texas solo show at G Gallery February 2017. I would love to invite the Houston LGBTQ community to see the show or/ and come out to the opening on Saturday Feb. 4th from 6-9 pm (the day before the Super Bowl)!
G Gallery, located at 310 East 9th Street 77007
Open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 12pm – 5pm and by appointment (713.869.4770).
Here is an excerpt from my statement:
These paintings, installations, and encaustics convey a colorful world seemingly untouched by the upheavals of ruin, bigotry, evil, violence, and fear, but are, in fact, a penetrating and personal view of this moment in our American life. They assert that, even at this time, the ideals of tenderness and compassion serve as the foundation of a prosperous society.
With a preference for motes of pure pigment, pencilled lines, metallic, neon, and iridescent color, I’ve developed a personal iconography. By presenting tangibly politicized objects and images in pacific settings— guns, rainbows, clouds, triangles, plant life and male/female reproductive organs— these works skirt the lines of representation and abstraction to create a vantage from which to view violence and prejudice.
I hope that experiencing familiar impulses in new surroundings will educate our emotions and influence a comprehensive reconsideration of how we treat the world, each other, and ourselves.
