ANTHONY LISTER’S SOLO EXHIBITION “BLACK DOOR LIMOUSINE ” AT ROBERT FONTAINE GALLERY

MIAMI, Fla.  Robert Fontaine Gallery, located in the heart of the Wynwood Arts District, will showcase new works by Australian artist Anthony Lister in a solo exhibition entitled “Black Door Limousine.” The opening reception will be held Saturday,  April 11th from 5 to 9 p.m. during Wynwood’s Second Saturday Art Walk. The exhibit will be on view April 11 – through April 26th 2015.

Back Door Limousine is a survey into the idea of celebrity as it relates to the current contemporary art world.  When celebrity clashes with notoriety and its effect on our beastly imagination how has this redefined the role of an artist and the work that comes from it.
“Who determines when the villain arrives or how the hero is perceived? From this work I hope to reveal the identity surrounding the myth of fame and am excited by the possibility that ones anonymity can be rediscovered.”  
statement by Anthony Lister 

Each canvas has its place in the timeline of Lister’s life, revealing his passing interests, social consciousness, and perception of the future. His influences are varied: graffiti, installations, stenciling, Pop art, comic book imagery, cartoons and his recollections of childhood when everything seemed fascinating and animated contemporary mythology ruled his television screen.

“A ceaseless observer….Poet, Anthony paints from a world all his own. He pushes forward taking with him the academic structure that has defined his bold style and ideology….with a narrative that no doubt separates him from his contemporaries.    Always moving forward, forcefully linear, Anthony’s  paintings manifest from the very depths of social & self discovery….He reinvents the standards as a painter and forever eroding  the rules which have come to define his importance.  In his latest body of work Lister explores the current idea of celebrity at a time when the art world has in some ways grown into the mainstream… and has thus reshaped artists into Heroes & Rockstars. ” 

-Statement by Robert Fontaine

Robert Fontaine Gallery is located at 2349 NW 2nd Ave; open noon-5 p.m., Monday through Saturday and by appointment; 305-397-8530; gallery@robertfontainegallery.com.
