Cavalier Galleries presents Guy Stanley Philoche: Come Fly with Me

MANHATTAN, N.Y. - Oct. 19, 2019 - PRLog -- Cavalier Gallery is pleased to present Come Fly With Me, an exhibition of new mixed-media paintings by Guy Stanley Philoche. This body of work features lively, layered surfaces inspired by city walls, built up with paint representing traces of wheat-pasted posters, advertisements, tagging and graffiti, which are contrasted by solid blocks of color that balance the energy in the composition. Crisp paper airplanes and butterflies made from collaged reproductions of dollars and euros appear within the paintings, adding another imaginative dimension to the work, while neon light brings a new element of urban life to the canvases.

Philoche's playful style is evident not only in his use of various textures and mediums, but also in the shape of his canvases; the artist often works on circular canvases and other unusual surfaces. The vivid colors, soaring paper airplanes, and delicate butterflies conjure up a sense of wonder and nostalgia, underscored by the title of the series, Come Fly With Me, a callback to Frank Sinatra's classic song from 1958.

Guy Stanley Philoche was born in Haiti in 1977, immigrating to Connecticut at age 3 where he was raised. Philoche studied art at the Paier College of Art in Connecticut, as well as at Yale University, and now lives and works in New York City.  Philoche's work has been exhibited in galleries and art fairs throughout the US and is included in several notable corporate and private collections.

NEW YORK — Cynthia Erivo and Greta Gerwig rocked sparkling chokers as the Golden Globes red carpet kicked off Sunday, with Erivo in a hand-beaded custom Thom Browne gown and Gerwig in black and cream. Both went off-shoulder for the big night in Beverly Hills, California. Erivo, the “Harriet” star and fashion standout, said her dress includes designs of her favorite flower, the peony, at the hem and in her lining. The short-sleeve gown, Erivo told E!, took 800 hours. A huge blue stone dropped from her short necklace. Shades of pink had an early trend moment on Kirsten Dunst...

Solidarity march against anti-Semitism, acts of hate

May 25, 2020

NEW YORK — Throngs of demonstrators joined by elected officials walked solemnly across the Brooklyn Bridge in a solidarity march Sunday against anti-Semitism and all acts of hate. The “No Hate, No Fear" march was organized by New York's Jewish community in the wake of recent anti-Semitic attacks, including a knife attack at a Hanukkah celebration north of New York City that left five people wounded and a fatal shootout at a kosher grocery in Jersey City, New Jersey. The crowds of participants jammed the streets in lower Manhattan as they waited their turns to get across the bridge. “It...

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

May 25, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Congress approves bill expanding animal cruelty law

May 25, 2020

WASHINGTON — Congress has passed a bill making certain types of animal cruelty a federal felony. The bill would expand a 2010 law that made creation or distribution of so-called "animal crushing" videos illegal. The new bill would make the underlying acts of cruelty a federal crime. The Senate unanimously passed the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act on Tuesday, two weeks after the House passed it on a voice vote. Florida Reps. Ted Deutch and Vern Buchanan sponsored the bill. Deutch, a Democrat, said it "sends a clear message that our society does not accept cruelty against animals" and...

Demonstrators demand halt to killings of women in Mexico

May 25, 2020

MEXICO CITY — Relatives of women and girls murdered or missing in Mexico marched through the capital Sunday carrying over 100 purple crosses inscribed with the names of victims, demanding justice for their loved ones and improved efforts to investigate their cases. Bearing T-shirts and signs with photos of the victims, they walked behind banners and chanted the victims' names as they headed for the sprawling main square, the Zocalo, to set up an offering near a massive altar erected to mark Dia de Muertos, or Day of the Dead. "Not one more killed!" they cried. "Our daughters, where are...
