La lutte de poulet

Herb Roe

May 7 – June 4, 2016

“My work focuses on depicting the relevance of traditional communal and community building events such as music, the boucherie and the Courir de Mardi Gras. The majority of this focus has been on the “courir”, the traditional pre-Lenten celebration of the Prairie Cajuns of southwest Louisiana, an entire day of masked revelry with its roots in the ancient Roman Lupercalia and Saturnalia. The participants’ elaborate costumes are drawn from medieval traditions, frontier era depictions of Native Americans and political and social commentary; costumes meant to simultaneously conceal ones identity and through the temporary repeal of societal inhibitions display their inner selves.”

It is the last full week to see the work of @cornedbeefreuben on our walls. The public response to this show has been empowering, with women from all walks of life coming in to let us know that identify and appreciate this representation of the female form. We are living through a monumental time which we can see a shift in our patriarchal and misogynistic society.  The beautiful works of Courtney Lubin use bold colors to contour and highlight women’s natural curves and provide a renewed vision of the female body. Please, join us and take time with these works. #femalegaze #womenpower #femaleform #femaleartists #feministart #womanifesto #nolaartists #contemporarypainting #artsdistrictneworleans #brandneworleansartgallery
