Michael Guidry: The Son and The Heir
June 11 - July 10, 2011
2501 Market Street, Galveston, TX 77550
Informed by melancholic music and dystopian sci-fi films, Michael Guidry‘s semi-abstract, eerily clean paintings are generated via camera and computer to read as both geometric abstractions and fractured, alien landscapes. Of nature, the artist says, “I like to look at it, appreciate it from a distance, but have no interest in being in it. I’d rather swim in a chlorine-filled pool than the ocean, or sit on pavement rather than grass.”
Galveston Arts Center is operating in a temporary downtown gallery space—the site of the former Maceo’s Spice and Import Company on the corner of Market and 25th Streets. Summer hours are Monday-Sunday, from 11 am to 5 pm.
