Eleanor Ettinger Gallery is pleased to present the most recent works of artist Michael De Brito in his third solo exhibition. The show will be the gallery’s first exhibition at their new location in Chelsea and the first multimedia show in its history. To celebrate the show, the gallery will host an opening reception on the evening of June 2, 2011 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
For his “Larger Than Life” exhibit, De Brito will utilize different mediums to trigger the senses and create the illusion of transporting the audience to the scenes from his works. The show will consist of nine large scale oil paintings accompanied by the artist’s first video installation. De Brito is also installing a replica of the kitchen which is the setting for many of his works. “Larger Than Life” will include De Brito’s largest scale works created to date.
“With my ‘Larger Than Life’ exhibit, my goal is to bridge the gap between myself and the viewer. Both the video installation and the kitchen replica help bring my paintings to life and give the audience a deeper emotional connection to my work,” said De Brito.
