Dissolving the Black Square: Georges le Chevallier’s Shibui Series

Shibui: (adjective) a Japanese word describing the subjective sensation produced by simple beauty; the subtle or unobtrusive; to appreciate an experience or aesthetic based on its own character and virtue

Through a melding of the Japanese notion of shibui—or the appreciation of the simplicity and character of elements and experiences, gastronomy, and Kazamir Malevich’s fabled Black Square, Georges le Chevallier’s Shibui series makes visual his desire to change human relations to technology. By making excess unnecessary and devoid of meaning, le Chevallier’s series showcases simplicity with an edge of wit and humor to make the Yadkin Cultural Arts Center’s Welborn Gallery walls vibrant with color and the shape of the square.

The exhibition is on display 3 March–29 April 2017 and the opening reception will be Friday, March 10 from 6–9 pm. Join the artist for an evening of culinary delights from the Third Branch Café’s shibui themed menu, live music, and local wine.
