GALERIE DEROUILLON
PRESENTS “LOVE OF BEGINNINGS”
A SOLO SHOW BY GUY YANAI
OPENING MARCH 16

Love of Beginnings, Yanai’s second solo show at Galerie Derouillon, holds personal resonance in both title and theme for Yanai, an artist who has spent his life starting over, moving between continents and across countries encountering new friends, new homes and new beginnings, ultimately leading him back to his native country of Israel, the land of the displaced.

The exhibited works depict different experiences of the artist, in different times and places, both figuratively and metaphorically. At the center of the show lie three large-scale oil paintings arranged in no particular order or sequence, presenting three beginnings treated with Yanai’s signature stylistic flatness, both unassuming and at times unsentimental.
