The Dreamworld Exhibit of Nicky Gurret and Sorgel at GalleryOne Seventeen

This not-to-be-missed joint exhibition features two artists at GalleryOne Seventeen on Front Street. The artist are Bermudian Nicky Gurret and French painter Pierre Sorgel.

Their show is titled, “The Dream World of Nicky Gurret and Sorgel”. This unique exhibition takes place for two weeks from Friday 17th May to May 31st.

Both artist met at Bermuda Plein Air Festival in 2015 and became fast friends and have previously exhibited together. Sorgel hails from Arcachon, France, located near Bordeaux and Nicky Gurret is Bermudian.

Sorgel's work is colourful, imaginative in a timeless world where boats fly and stairs of books spring up to the sky. His world is where the artistic madness of the painter touches the childish soul of the spectator. His work has been inspired by the Flemish heritage of Piéter Bruegel, Jerome Bosch and is deeply guided by his intuition.

Sorgel will make you sail with his surreal and magical sailboats into to the distant beaches of Paul Gauguin. He paints with acrylic on canvas and using fine brushes. The culmination of one of his creations may take several years during which he unleashes his dreamlike happy world .

Nicky Gurret's work in the show is varied in style from the abstract to impressionist with vivid colours and emphasis on movement. Her work is imaginative and also at times timeless. Her inspirations are Georgia O'Keefe and Rosario Cabrera. She paints with both oil on canvas and acrylic on canvas.

Gallery One Seventeen is located 117, Front Street, City of Hamilton, 10-5pm Monday to Saturday, telephone 295-1783.
