Punk Me Tender
Samuel Lynne Galleries is pleased to announce Punk Me Tender’s arrival to Dallas for the opening of his new exhibition Together, we rise, we love, we share the moon at the Thompson Dallas at the National. The exhibition will be on view through October 2, 2021.
A Parisian artist who moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams, Punk Me Tender explores themes of beauty, love, and destruction in his work. The butterfly has become an integral part of his artwork and his signature paintings contain brightly colored butterflies covered in diamond dust giving them an ethereal feel. These paintings represent renewal, rebirth and resurrection just as a butterfly transforms, so do these works of art. The Artist strives to create a metamorphic experience for anyone who encounters his works.
In the Artist’s newest series, he invites destruction to be a part of his creation by burning parts of the artwork. This shows the fragility of life by taking what he creates and partly destroying it, showing that beauty can be shattered in the blink of an eye, but sometimes it is this destruction that allows for growth and renewal.
