More from Jean Labourdette

Jean Labourdette “Turf One” has floored us once again! We keep on looking at his paintings, and he just does not stop impressing us.

Soul _1 For his show Tiny Theater of the Absurd at Stranger Factory opening September 6, Jean has created a wide range of sizes of his work to appeal to just about everyone. Above, we have just that.

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.
