The Space Between, Federico Infante, Bertrand Delacroix Gallery, (October 02 – November 01, 2014)

October 2 – November 1, 2014





BDG is thrilled to present Federico Infante’s debut US solo exhibition, THE SPACE BETWEEN. The young Chilean’s acrylic masterpieces blend figurative and abstract elements to create ethereal worlds on paper and canvas. His all-new collection will remain true to his signature style but will experiment with new themes and artistic directions as he evolves as a painter; Infante himself said he is proud of the “maturity of the [upcoming] collection.”

Inspired by the Chilean landscape, by everyday life in New York City and by his own intuition, Infante creates honest paintings that portray beautiful, dream-like universes. His compositions incorporate sections of realism with portions of abstraction. Infante seamlessly juxtaposes layers of multiple colors to achieve serene and powerful palettes. The colorful backgrounds of his works, some more articulated than others, are typically foggy with visible evidence of the artist’s process – drips and streaks of paint. Emerging from these unclear surroundings, the viewer finds a beautifully rendered figure, usually turned away or unaware of the viewer’s gaze. The carefully articulated subject in contrast to the hazy background mirrors the relationship between reality, spirituality and the subconscious. His distinct paintings are capable of communicating so much through a single image.

Although he is a young artist, Infante has quickly distinguished himself in the American market. Since his introduction to the gallery in the spring of last year, Infante’s works have consistently sold out. Infante received his BFA from Finis Terrae University in 2002 and graduated in the spring of 2013 with his MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts in New York. He was the recipient of the Uanlane Foundation Scholarship (2012), the Conicyt Scholarship (2009), and the Juan Downey Grant (2004). He has had several successful solo and group exhibitions in Chile. His work has been adopted into private collections across the US and internationally, including France, Belgium, Germany and Singapore. Infante currently lives and works in New York; he will attend the opening on October 2 and is available for interviews.

Xavier Rodés, Axelle Galerie, (October 11-November 02, 2014)

October 11-November 2, 2014




Camaret, Oil, 23½”  x 23½”                      The red one, Oil, 15¾” x 15¾”                       Mediterranean corner, Oil, 10½” x 10½”


This fall, Axelle SoHo will host a solo exhibition for Barcelona native, Xavier Rodés. Following the success of Rodés’ debut US solo show at our sister gallery in Boston last year, Axelle is excited to present his new collection to New York City. Rodés’ seascapes, landscapes and serene city scenes are distinguished by their unique and meticulously executed approach to light and detail.

Rodés’ articulately rendered oil on canvas paintings each capture a very specific moment in time – a time when the light, the tide and the sky were just so. His works convey an unusual harmony between nature, architecture and the hand of the artist. He frequently depicts piers and harbors built into vast oceans and seas; however, his tranquil compositions of American and European towns reveal a world where man-made beams rise almost organically from the water without disrupting the beauty of the natural surroundings. Whether painting sunny coastal towns, quiet snowy scenes or his whimsical still lifes, Rodés’ works demonstrate an innate ability to sensitively render light, precision and emotion.

Born in 1971, Rodés studied art at EINA College in Spain, where he focused on Industrial and Urban Landscape. Following Rodés’ first exhibition in 1996, he has exhibited his work at many galleries throughout Spain. He has taken part in several international fairs such as those in Strasbourg, London and Madrid. His paintings are present in many private and public collections and in galleries worldwide, including USA, France, Switzerland, and Argentina. Today, he lives and works in El Masnou, a town not far from Barcelona.  He will attend the opening reception on October 11.
