Informed by Intuition: From the Collection of Mindy and Michael Solomon
November 9, 2019 - January 5, 2020
As you enter a pink gallery with saturated colors, the faces of exaggerated figurative sculptures peer out at you. These works represent animals, humans, hybrid creatures, and hermaphrodites. With both imaginative and social commentaries, this selection of works pushes the medium of ceramics into a conceptual realm. The installation of these works is meant to feel like a forest of curiosities, a presentation that is both as playful and intuitive as the collection of Mindy and Michael Solomon. Visiting with Mindy and Michael Solomon is like meeting friends who dedicate their lives to exquisite objects, family and friends, their two dogs, and wholesome living in Buena Vista. These works are lived with and give their home character.
Mindy Solomon Gallery specializes in contemporary emerging and mid-career artists and art advisory services. She is both a collector and dealer. Her gallery represents artists working in painting, sculpture, photography, and video in both narrative and non-objective styles. The Mindy Solomon Gallery program explores the intersection of art and design through an ongoing dialog between two and three-dimensional objects while embracing diasporic voices. Utilizing the gallery space as a platform for inventive exhibitions, museum visitations, and public lectures, Solomon invites a sense of community and aesthetic enrichment.
