NOW SHOWING through June, C&G Gallery presents “Flourish,” A Celebration of Flowers by C. Nöel Kennard.
Nöel was born in Georgetown, Guyana, South America, and also lived in Trinidad and Toronto, Canada. Noël’s influences have come from experiences, individuals and processes. As a child growing up in Guyana, kite flying was a big occasion at Easter, and, one of his fondest memories is seeing the sky filled with hundreds of kites creating a colorful mosaic. He feels that seeing so many colors simultaneously has had a subliminal effect on how he visualizes and composes his work to this day.
Noël applies his aesthetic to themed collections such as architecture, landscapes, flowers and jazz, and produces his work printed on photographic papers, canvas, acrylic and aluminum. One-of-a-kind pieces are printed, hand signed and certified as original.
