On August 17, Old Montreal’s S16 Gallery will open its doors to art admirers and culture connoisseurs for the first official solo exhibition by renowned visual artist Roxy Peroxyde, aptly titled The Current Things.
Operating under the nom d’artiste Roxy Peroxyde, Roxanne Sauriol Hauenherm is a Montreal-born Canadian creator who has captured international attention with her vibrant oil paintings. Her technique, though rooted in photorealism, transcends into something more profound, adding layers of emotion and nuance to classic works.
Roxy Peroxyde’s latest collection – The Current Things – surpasses mere visual art, offering a provocative commentary on the cyclical nature of trends, societal norms, and history itself. By marrying the classical and the contemporary, her oeuvre forces us to question the difference between superficiality and authenticity.
These works illuminate the inherent tension between our true selves and the masks we wear in public life. By juxtaposing elements from old icons with modern insights, the artist bridges a connection between different epochs, compelling viewers to ponder on universal truths.
The Current Things invites us into a dialogue between the past and the present. It’s not just an art exhibition; it’s a thoughtful meditation on our place within the continuum of time. It is a chance to explore the timeless stories we weave, told through the expressive and dynamic art of this creative spirit.
Join S16 Gallery in Old Montreal for this enlightening event, where art meets history and where the whispers of the old masters are given new life through the contemporary brilliance of Roxy Peroxyde. Mark your calendar, and allow yourself to be immersed in a world that both remembers and evolves.
