Mindy Solomon Gallery artists and brothers Einar and Jamex de la Torre are known for their mixed media works based upon their Mexican-American bi-cultural experience.

We are thrilled to be exhibiting three great works by Generic Art Solutions (GAS) at SCOPE Basel, Switzerland, June 12th-17th: Marat, The Raft, and Liberty. See them all on the GAS page of our website here // Generic Art Solutions work at Mindy Solomon Gallery
Generic Art Solutions is the collaborative effort of Matt Vis and Tony Campbell. This New Orleans-based art duo utilizes nearly every art medium to examine recurring themes of human drama and functions of contemporary society. Always rooted in the performative, the pair play every character in each of their works. The resultant effect of their elaborate two-man stagings is as impressive as the subject matter itself. By combining classical, romantic, and baroque compositional elements with contemporary pictorial techniques, GAS seek to illuminate common threads that connect past histories with current events: that the history of art is political; that human behavior repeats itself; that the cycle of repetition must be broken in order for progress to be made. More absurd than comical, the work is a humorous and irreverent commentary on the function of art and contemporary life.
GAS’s video portraits and public performances are just as poignant as their photographs. Please enjoy a few of their enactments here:

Mindy Solomon Gallery artist Gary Petersen‘s painting ‘The Things I Miss’ was featured in Art in America in May, along with a great review on Petersen: ”Showing a softer side to hard-edge abstraction…meditations on space, angle and extension…emotional content as well, which moves the viewer with its sense of attenuation.” And, “new territory to explore in a tradition that feels like it is just getting started.” We couldn’t agree more!

Gary Petersen ‘The Things I Miss’ 2011, 20 x 16 inches, acrylic and oil on masonite panel
Petersen says of his work: ”I am an abstract painter using geometry, particularly line, to reflect vulnerability and uncertainty in the world and in the self. Color allows somewhat familiar forms to become personal and subtly eccentric. My work is influenced by childhood cartoons, cosmology, the body, and pop culture. My longtime interest in early 20th century abstraction and the notion of the cosmic merges with an American pop sensibility.”
Gary Petersen is a native New Yorker, and holds a BS from Penn State and an MFA from The School of Visual Arts. Awards include: a studio at The Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation Space Program 2010-2011; The New Jersey State Council on the Arts; Painting Fellowship Award for 2011, 2002, and 1993; and the Visual Arts Fellowship Award, Edward F. Albee Foundation, 1988. Petersen’s works have been exhibited widely in solo shows since the 1990s, and reviewed in The New York Sun, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and The Partisan Review. He currently occupies a studio at The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts in New York City.
