North Carolina artist Felix Semper in Unbound Perspectives

Inspired by Abstract Impressionists, street artists, and Impressionists alike, Felix Semper uses his paintings to explore the joyful power of draftsmanship.

The artist employs a restricted palette and often an absent or gestural background. The images do not exist in a recognizable environment or even within the laws of physics; every element of a picture is secondary to the line. It is in the mark that the atmosphere and arc of each painting comes alive. Semper primarily creates figure portraits, switching between styles as the emotion demands. Some canvases may depict detailed, realistic people floating surreally above a field of heads; others are as quick and spare as pencil sketches. But above all Semper injects his work with spontaneity and a raw sense of feeling, even in the most careful compositions.

Felix Semper was born in Havana, Cuba and has lived in both Spain and the United States. He currently lives in North Carolina, where he works in construction, sculpture, painting and drawing.

About the Exhibition
The artwork in Persistence of Form abounds with an enticingly lively sense of movement and energy which both reaches out to the audience and encourages us to dive into the art and go along for the ride. The pieces display personality and individual concerns, yet also possess a universal awareness that connects them to the shared experience of being human. The artists in Unbound Perspectives present their unique vision of existence and reality through works which are compelling and thoroughly creative in their insistence on leaving behind accepted boundaries and striking boldly out into new ground. In Divine Stardom: Lady Gioconda / a Solo Exhibition the artist presents work which combines harmony and a sense of stylistic diversity, for a surprisingly spiritual, and spirited, effect.

The exhibitions begin on November 22, 2013 and continue until December 13, 2013. The opening reception is on the evening of Thursday December 5, 2013. Entrance is free and art lovers are warmly invited to attend.
