Gasp! He’s done it again. I’ve written about American born, Sweden based artist Joey Bates before, but when he keeps doing THIS to paper, how am I supposed to control myself? Must. Write. Post. His latest show, titled Everything is Fleeting, opens on Thursday November 21 {6pm} at Galerie Youn in Montreal. Here is Joey’s description of these stunning pieces:

“Energy dispersal and change comprise the impetus for this body of work. Each piece references a volcanic explosion or amalgamation of explosions to recall disruption, destruction, and eventual renewal. The flowers lend a patina of beauty and ease to a process that is jarring, disorienting, and happening constantly — whether or not we are paying attention.”

So good. Again. ps. This show will be up until January 19, 2020.
