“The Tao” of Randy Chollette

| 01/10/2008

(CNS): The latest work of Caymanian artist Randy Chollette will be shown in a private viewing for National Gallery members and the artist’s collectors. The exhibition, entitled “The Tao”, is sponsored by Arch Automotive, Audi’s representative in Cayman, and the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands.

“Be it artistic or technical, excellence comes from a single source: creative passion,” commented General Manager Arch Automotive, Michelle Arch in a release from the Gallery. She said, “This is why Audi is pleased to be a cultural sponsor and continue to grow our partnership with the National Gallery of the Cayman Islands in hosting this very specialRandy Chollette exhibit”.

Chollette’s work is a combination of realism and abstract art with subject matters ranging from landscape to cultural artefacts to political statements. The artist is uncompromising and outspoken when it comes to expressing his opinions about our islands and preserving its culture.

Also evident is his love for Cayman’s natural surroundings, honour for his African heritage and observance of brotherhood and humanity. Those convictions are evident throughout his work and can be seen in the piece entitled “Immaculate Conception” in which he touches on the birth of the universe and correlates this to the birth of humankind’s spirituality.

Director of the Gallery, Nancy Barnard, commented, “I am really happy that Arch Automotive has joined us in creating a new atmosphere to display artwork on a whole. They are the only automobile company who partners with us as we have worked with them before. The management and staff are truly supportive of the development of the visual arts in our islands.”

The private members opening and viewing will commence on Friday, 3 October, beginning at 5:00pm at the Arch Automotive show room on North Sound Road. The works will be on display to the public through Wednesday, 17 October.
