Christina West // Intimate Strangers on CFile

Following a recent interview with Mindy Solomon Gallery artist Christina West, Garth Clark published an article featuring West’s Intimate Strangers exhibition this week on CFile. Clark give a special nod to Christina’s painted aqua resin figures (often larger than life), calling the work “deftly-executed and arresting.” We love having Christina’s “strangers” in the gallery, particularly as our last exhibit before we move to our new home in the Little River neighborhood of Miami. Today is the last day to see the show; don’t miss it!

Wookjae Maeng // Hi Fructose

Gallery artist Wookjae Maeng was recently featured in Hi Fructose for his one-of-a-kind surrealistic animal sculptures. In this article, Maeng states: “In my work I hope to provide an opportunity—however brief—for modern man to consider the realities of the environment in which he exists, even as he continues his daily existence indifferent to it.”
