Jennifer Lefort and Andrew Casto featured in Luxury Guide

The upcoming shows of Jennifer Lefort and Andrew Casto are featured in the Miami Edition of the March/April South Florida Luxury Guide as The Art of Wandering.

Jennifer Lefort explores abstraction’s winding roads with paintings featuring punches of color and distorted patterns. Ceramic sculptor Andrew Casto parallels Lefort’s showcase with Revelatory Derivé, which examines Guy Debord’s psychological theory of derivé (meaning “drifting” in French), a method of experimental behavior in urban society, which involves the “rapid passage through varied ambiances.”

Mindy Solomon Gallery is pleased to present the inaugural solo exhibitions of artists Jennifer Lefort and Andrew Casto. Both artists explore the possibilities of abstraction through movement, gesture, surface and palette. On view at the gallery March 11th–May 14th,  2017 at 8397 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami in Little River.  An opening reception will take place Saturday, March 11th from 6-9pm; artist Andrew Casto will attend.

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

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.”
