SOUTHFIELD, Mich., May 3, 2016 – Park West Gallery, known for fine art auctions on cruise ships, live art auctions in major metropolitan areas and art galleries in Detroit and Miami Lakes, Florida, presents the metallic and elegant art of artist Patrick Guyton.

Experience “Sophisticated Simplicity” from May 8-29 at Park West Gallery, located in Southfield, Michigan, where 45 new works by Guyton will be on display and available to collect in its main showroom.

Guests who RSVP for an opening reception on May 7 will have the opportunity to meet the artist from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

This will be the first time Guyton has held a solo exhibition at Park West Gallery. The collection featured during “Sophisticated Simplicity” is the largest collection of Guyton paintings publicly offered by Park West Gallery.

“Leonardo da Vinci once said, ‘Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.’ This quote speaks to Patrick Guyton’s work, as it alludes to the confident usage of space in his minimalist compositions,” says David Gorman, Park West Gallery Director.

Guyton’s art fuses Japanese gold and silver leafing techniques from the 14th century with 17th-century Flemish techniques of glazing.  By combining these techniques with transparent layers of paint, Guyton achieves a style that masterfully contrasts light and dark while breathing new life into ancient aesthetics.

“Guyton’s paintings contain a sense of balance and harmony, allowing viewers to relax and escape, even if just for a moment, from the commotion of their everyday lives,” Gorman says.

Guyton, who resides in Orange County, California, worked as a commercial artist creating signs, murals and illustrations. In the late ‘90s, he worked in animation with Warner Brothers before transitioning to fine art.

Admission to the exhibition and gallery is complimentary. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. For additional information and to RSVP for the opening, call 248-354-2343 or email RSVP@parkwestgallery.com.
