What do painted linear structures, mirror drawings, light tunnels and the new breed of mobile and social applications for the art world have in common? They are all discussed in detail with host Daniel Durning on this program of Art and Technology live from Scope 2012 edition in New York City.
SCOPE is a network of art fairs favoring narrative works and the galleries presenting this expressive niche. Dense creative surfaces hang on white walls temporarily set up for the weekend while looking to connect with new collectors and the art fairing public entering into the vast marketplace of art collecting.
The Mindy Solomon Gallery works beyond the norms of the marketplace system while presenting the importance of vitality and passion. Visit Booth A11 at SCOPE and you will discover an impassioned display of ground-breaking, high-quality, thought-provoking artists dedicated to a personal manifesto of vision expressed over a lifetime.
The artistic vision of Booth A11 stood out, and artnet featured our SCOPE NY booth A11 in their daily magazine today. Read the artnet article and see our booth here, featuring new works by the de la Torre Brothers, Generic Art Solutions, Marc Burckhardt, Bonnie Marie Smith, Kurt Weiser, Sunkoo Yuh and James Kennedy.
The Mindy Solomon Gallery works hard to present thought-provoking, high-quality contemporary art works by emerging talent representing the best in sculptural forms, photography, painting and mixed media.

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).

SCOPE ART SHOW TO BUILD MONUMENTAL PAVILION ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE ARMOR Y SHOW
New York, NY — Following the tremendous success of its Miami edition, SCOP Art Show returns to New York City for the eleventh year, with an exciting, high-profile location across from The Armory Show.
The 30,000 square foot pavilion on 57th Street and 12th Ave will host SCOPE’s flagship fair, SCOPE New York, featuring over 50 international galleries and museum-quality programming that will highlight groundbreaking, emerging work in contemporary art and beyond. SCOPE New York’s First View will take place on March 7, 2012, with proceeds benefitting New York-based non-profit, chashama.
The SCOPE pavilion will also be home to the newly launched SCOPE Foundation Series, showcasing a variety of projects, events and performances across multiple creative genres, including art, design, film and fashion. Proceeds from this series will benefit The SCOPE Foundation, creating continued opportunities for emerging artists and galleries worldwide. (above, de la Torre Brothers, Quinceañera).
With over 45 art fairs spanning more than a decade, SCOPE has solidified its position as the premier showcase for international emerging contemporary art and multi-disciplinary creative programming. SCOPE’s extensive reach enables an unrivaled opportunity for networking with art patrons, creative professionals and a culturally relevant public audience.
Renowned for presenting the most innovative galleries, artists and curators, SCOPE Art Shows in Miami, Basel and New York have garnered extensive critical acclaim, with sales of over $200 million and attendance of over 425,000 visitors. (above, Bonnie Marie Smith).
Mindy Solomon Gallery is preparing for SCOPE NY March 7—11 and is working hard to introduce a new line up of artists and art work to be presented at the fair. Keeping this in mind we are proud to introduce fine artist Marc Burckhardt from Austin, Texas.
Marc Burckhardt lives and works in a 1910 farmhouse in the shadows of downtown. Born in Germany and raised in Texas, Burckhardt’s work juxtaposes old world styles and symbols with very current American themes. As a youth, Burckhardt traveled Europe each year with his family, a tradition he continues today. The paintings, architecture, and perspectives he encounters in Europe combined with his studies of art history inform his current work and convey modern ideas through thought-provoking scenarios. Through the study and use of old masters’ techniques such as glazing and layering varnishes, Marc achieves the texture and luminosity that distinguish his paintings. The aged surface denotes importance and gravity which is then juxtaposed with Burckhardt’s often quirky or mischievous subjects.
Please contact the gallery for additional information and acquisition details for the above pieces by Marc Burckhardt.
