Richard Purdy: "Vanitas"

Hybrid project of 4K video and painting.

Bellemare et Lambert Galleries proudly present a series of seven unrestored works on 4K video platform by Richard Purdy.  

Enter a Salon of academic paintings with luxurious baroque frames. Their highly varnished surfaces show the passage of time. In one, a gleaming, fleshy salmon is leaning on it's side like a Botero nude. Suddenly, a fly alights on the fish, then flits away.
