2.�Deux C�t�s / Two Sides:�The opening reception is the evening of Thursday, December 1, 2016, and the show runs�January 14, 2017.

Gallerists Stephanie Theodore (Brooklyn) and Emilie Ovaere Corthay (Paris) noticed common preoccupations among�abstract painters in Paris and New York. They conceived a�two-part exhibition that demonstrates the similarities and differences on both�sides of the Atlantic.�In September, the first part of the exhibition was installed at Theodore:Art in Brooklyn, and for the second part, the Galerie Jean Fournier is welcoming work from the same American artists�(Eric Brown, Sharon Butler, Jack Davidson and Joyce Robins) in a dialogue with Fabienne Gaston-Dreyfus, Nicolas Guiet, Pierre Mabille, Peter Soriano and Claude Tetot–all�united by abstraction and color.

The approaches of these eight artists are of course unique, but are all underpinned by the idea of a simple geometry, without ostentation, absolutely undemonstrative. These artists are also united by the search for formal balance and a profound understanding of the constructive and expansive power of color.
