Nicolas Touron is a storyteller, and like a gifted one of the oral tradition, he enhances and embellishes his tales each time they’re told. As an artist he creates engaging and complex work in both painting and sculpture that, through concepts of movement, evolution, characters, and motifs, suggest larger narratives.Departing from traditional approaches, Touron’s stories never have specific beginnings or ending, and in this way become visual embodiments of the living process of storytelling.
For the exhibition at The Invisible Dog, Touron will show a group of work including colorful painting and drawing depicting phantasmagorical stories and a series of sculptures inspired by the artificial environment of the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.
This exhibition has been made possible, in part, with support from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
The Invisible Dog Art Center’s 2015 Exhibition series is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
