Skipper: Volta 2016, Solo Exhibition, Luis De Jesus Gallery, New York
Beaucage’s Skipper paintings invites you to follow a young swashbucklers couple in a topside adventure. Petula is a sailor, she sold all her belongings in New York and now navigates the South Pacific with her lover and shipmate; a philosopher from Denmark called Gudbjorn. He is a scholar and an activist. His most famous publications are: How To Give Up Oil For Electric Cars, How to Stop Polar Caps from Melting and How to create Justice and Equality for Everyone. Gud loves cutting wood. Making wood ornaments while thinking about how the worlds populations is exponentially growing. What will happen to the food production in Micronesia he wonders; Gud wonders a lot and then he writes books with solutions about it; from his own experience on the ground. A femme of high spirits, Petula enjoys great conversations with aged tequila in her sailboat boudoir. She loves to be top free on the island, surrounding herself with quiet plants. Every afternoon Petula swims. Gud takes pictures of Petula day and night. They plumb the depths together.
