Schemes & Ghost Hands Opens September 24

Mindy Solomon Gallery presents Schemes by Ernesto Garcia Sanchez, and Ghost Hands by Linda Lopez in the gallery’s Project Space. Linda Lopez’s ceramics and Ernesto Garcia Sanchez’s paintings bring new life and energy to traditional media. Exploration, investigation, and spontaneity are the hallmarks of their individual practices.

Ghost Hands explores the persistent presence of the absent. These pieces search for the unseen thread that connects people and things that once shared an intangible moment. In this realm, logic is lost, objects are personified, perception is ever-changing, and things become their true selves. Linda Lopez is a child of two ethnicities—Vietnamese and Mexican. In her current exhibition, she incorporates rugs made by artisans in Mexico with her sculptural pieces that form bridges between historic memory and new beginnings. Each work showcases the alternative existence of objects.

In Schemes, his second exhibition at Mindy Solomon Gallery, Ernesto Garcia Sanchez (Havana, Cuba) continues to explore the possibilities of line and textured surface. Sanchez was among the artists chosen to present work in the 2015 Havana Biennial—the first since US restoration of diplomatic relations with Cuba. The artist’s work takes on a performative angle; through the process of controlling his drawing and painting using one side of his device, in this way he allows the other side to move freely, reflecting the subconscious act of painting.*
