MAY 25: Devin Crane’s “Heaven Can Wait” in Paris

Painting by Devin Crane

Devin Crane‘s first solo European show, “Heaven Can Wait,” will open at Galerie Arludik in Paris next week. Crane, whose animation connection is visual development at DreamWorks, focused his slickly stylized series of seventeen paintings around the female form, and if the tanned and fit (some would say emaciated) form of woman that he paints look like they belong on a Southern California beach, it might be because Crane is a lifelong LA native. High fashion plays a central role in these works, with a sprinkling of theologic undertones, if not already evident from the title of the show. More information about the show and paintings can be found at the gallery’s website. Galerie Arludik is located at 12-14, rue St. Louis en l’ÃŽle 75004 Paris. (Please note the opening date has been moved up one day to May 25 because of a planned labor strike in Paris.)
