I was asked to write a review of Edwige Fouvry's show at the Dolby Chadwick Gallery (SF, CA).

Edwige Fouvry's work at Dolby Chadwick is very present. When you see
her paintings in person, there's a softer clarity than one might
perceive when looking at the digital images. The paint seems more
"harmonious" in person. In either case, there's a strong sense of
personality-- both hers and those of her subjects. Her line, the
presence of her brush, has a quite open feeling to it. Yet her figures
exist in seemingly tight or closed, almost suffocating space. I am
particularly charmed by the little seascapes which have an immediacy to
them. It is quite nice to meet her; she looks particularly lovely
sporting a "madder lake deep"-colored scarf, an ever-present signature
color in her figures.
