Mindy Solomon Gallery proudly presents “Explicit Content” featuring an 18 and over exhibition showcasing uninhibited, sexually arousing perspectives exposing graphic nudity found behind closed doors. (Above, Georgine Ingold).
The purpose of this show is to create a sensory pictorial of the most intimate, yet unemotional aspects of human sexuality. Peep into the world of black and white photo-documenting the Los Angeles prostitutes of Scot Sothern, the sculptural couplings of Christina West, the private video diaries of Barbara DeGenevieve (Above), the erotic drawings of Bart Johnson, the provocative female nudes by Becky Flanders, the Impressionist inspired paintings of Georgine Ingold and Victorian inspired sculptures exposed by Bonnie Marie Smith and Leopold Foulem.
“Explicit Content” will plumb the depths of the most innate physical yearnings while showcasing a visiting artist reception, Saturday, April 14 from 6—8PM with artist talk at 6:30PM and panel discussion on Sunday, April 15 from 1—2:30PM entitled, “Risky Business—Artists baring it all” including artists Barbara DeGenevieve, Scot Sothern(Above), Christina West, and Becky Flanders.
Painter, Carrie Ann Baade has recently completed two new oil on panel paintings titled, “Halcyon” (below) and “Butterfly Lovers.” Both paintings are autobiographical narratives deeply rooted in allegory and further inspired by literature and historic discourse. (Above, Butterfly Lovers, 26×34″ framed, oil on panel).
At first glance, you might consider Carrie’s works as moral fables merged with fragments of religious paintings inspired by Renaissance revival of the 14th through 16th centuries. Carrie Ann Baade has recently been awarded the Florida Division of Cultural Affairs Individual Artist Fellowship, the Delaware Division of the Arts Fellowship for Established Artist and nominated for the prestigious United States Artist Fellowship.
To learn more about Carrie’s work and to see her paintings in person, please contact the gallery.
Recently, we added the seductive paintings by Basel, Switzerland artist Georgine Ingold. Georgine works in narrative figuration and favors the heavy stroke of the paint brush offering contemporary colored works. Ingold is fascinated by the power of abstraction, not afraid of interpretative brush movements that deliver “just enough” information on brightly composed canvases.
Explicit Content opens Saturday, April 14, 6—8PM and will be on exhibition through May 19, 2012.

The Mindy Solomon Gallery has teamed up with the Jonathan Ferrara Gallery to present the photographic works of Generic Arts Solutions (G.A.S.) at SCOPE NY, Booth A11, March 7—11.
Generic Art Solutions is a dynamic ”art team” consisting of artists Matt Vis and Tony Campbell, who make concept driven artwork, often with humor and/or mischief at its core. Matt Vis holds an MFA from the University of New Orleans and Tony Campbell has an MA from The Royal College of Art. Their works blend art history and humor to comment on present-day concerns such as immigration, capital punishment and man-made disasters. Their goal is not to merely replicate past masterpieces, but to beckon dialogue between the past and the present.
In the words of the artists: “It has been said that the only constant is change, and it is change that either excites us or creates fear. That which we cannot control ruthlessly illustrates our position of involvement in this perpetual revolution weather we like it or not. This show is a call to action. It represents our belief that faintheartedness is to be despised.” – Generic Arts Solutions (G.A.S.), 2011
James Kennedy is busy readying his paintings for a SCOPE NY next week, March 7—11 and will be featured at Booth A11.
Working with the dissections of space, James Kennedy constructs his compositions with a sense of constant movement. James applies a variety of techniques—color washes, etched lines scribed into the fabric of the surface—carefully analyzing spatial relationships. “When you look at my paintings closely it’s as much about the construct as it is about the content,” James shared. (above, CONSTRUCTIVE TENDENCIES, 51 X 51,” MIXED MEIDA ON INCISED MASONITE).
James is creating all new work for SCOPE NY and a VIP reception for James Kennedy in collaboration with the Surface Library on Friday, March 9 from 6—9PM is planned to reveal a large scaled, very involved new work. Please contact us or email to attend this wonderful event. Details and RSVP information will be provided. Read an interview featuring James Kennedy here.(above, FACE OFF, DIPTYCH, 2 FRAMED PANELS, 39 X 39,” Mixed Media on Incised Masonite).
Kurt Weiser’s extraordinary old master inspired paintings of allegory and nature will be featured at SCOPE Art Fair in New York at the Mindy Solomon Gallery Booth No. A11.
Potter and painter, Kurt Weiser combines function with communication, utility with decoration, and traditional painting with contemporary craft.
Kurt’s work is much like a seasoned master who delicately transforms sculpted shapes into allegoric tales that dispel modern mythology. Kurt Weiser’s work is housed in museums nationally and internationally including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.; Museum of Contemporary Ceramic Art and Institute of Ceramics, Shigaraki, Japan; Helsinki Museum of Applied Arts, Finland; and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
