A notice found of de art show my friend, Matt Foley, done for me, him.
"In a world rife with crime, violence, gangs and drugs, DuFauve frequently casts a critical eye at modern society's shortcomings. He sees things in black and white, contending that we all make choices, so - in reality - there are no gray areas. The artist is not without a sense of humor. DuFauve feels laughter is the salve that sooths the savage beast. Still, life is no joke. Too often filled with tears.. DuFauve's work reflects that condition. Immediate, brash, emotional, raw are apropos terms when applied to characterizing his style of painting. There is a vitality and exuberance in the works and though there is a perceived immediacy to the execution of the work, the paintings actually take quite some time to reach completion. Christian DuFauve is a voice crying out in the wilderness we seem to insist in creating, where a utopia would be so much more pleasant."
