Jean Labourdette “Turf One” has floored us once again! We keep on looking at his paintings, and he just does not stop impressing us.
You aren’t looking into an almost perfect view of a peephole or an eye exam, but a perfectly painted eye wrapped in an exemplary circular frame. Even at a miniature size, this shows the detail and precision Jean is known for.
With a title of “Soul”, Jean allows us more depth than just a human eye. Eyes are the most expressive part of your body. A person can pretend to be happy or excited but if that’s not reflected by a light in your eyes, someone who knows you really well will be able to tell. Whatever you’re feeling inside is mirrored in your eyes as in a mirror into your soul. Well done sir, well done!
Jean Labourdette and Travis Louie’s “Tiny Theater of the Absurd” runs September 6th – 29th, with an opening reception on Friday, September 6th from 6 – 9 PM.
