A solo exhibition by Thomas Doyle
LBP :: Culver City
November 12th – December 17, 2011
Artist reception: Saturday, November 12th, 7-10 pm
LeBasse Projects is proud to announce ‘Surface to Air,’ a solo exhibition by New York-based artist Thomas Doyle.
“Surface to Air” will also debut Doyle’s new Foregone series, consisting of photographic portraits of the child figures that feature prominently in his sculptural work. Measuring just a few millimeters high, each figure is hand painted and then photographed in an enlarged format, revealing detail unseen by the naked eye. Coated in a patina of microscopic debris, the figures reveal the limitations and random nature of painting while evoking the tenderness and anxieties of childhood.
