This show is going to be a real evolution in Tessar's work both in direction and scale.
This is one young artist who is not happy to recreate images he knows he can sell, but continues to push his own growth and development. We are very excited to have Tessar open up as the first solo exhibition in the new gallery.

LeBasse Projects presents two concurrent solo exhibitions:
“Future Perfect” a solo exhibition by Tessar Lo
April 11th – May 2nd Artist reception: Saturday, April 11th, 7-10p
LeBasse Projects is proud to announce "Future Perfect," the first solo exhibition from artist Tessar Lo.
Lo developed his first solo show around the idea that the future is completely unforeseeable. Only in our dreams can the future be a utopia, and while anything is ultimately possible, the reality is we do not know where we will find ourselves.
Lo’s paintings often depict these ideas and emotions he cannot easily express in words. While on the surface Lo’s work often has the feel of an intimate storybook, upon closer inspection we see a deep sense of vulnerability and loneliness. The paintings for his solo exhibition continue to develop these feelings as he states his desire to be an island - alone, not needing to rely or respond to anyone but himself. The series of paintings are also larger in scale than anything Lo has worked on before.

It was a great show. Tessar's work was beautiful. I have to say though, that the little pieces attached to the works were distracting. It wasn't as distracting until I saw it in person. Other than that minor criticism I was very impressed.
