Mindy Solomon Gallery and curator Ché Morales are pleased to present “Lover’s Rock”, a virtual art experience designed by Hoque and Morales and digitally executed by Adriana Avendano, featuring artworks from Asif Hoque’s first solo presentation with the gallery.
“Lover’s Rock” is a modern epic. A world synthesized from Hoque’s life experiences—past, present, and yet to come—set to the backdrop of familiar classical architecture and mythologies. The unorthodox story centers around the journey of two brown-skinned lovers who find their way to one another, guided by mystic spirits that grow alongside their mortal counterparts.
Though the tale follows a seemingly conventional romantic narrative, Hoque’s universe carries a full intentionality to convey the wholeness of each figure, whether it be a lover, or a winged guardian. Each curved and coiffed body at peace — writing a story of self love that paves the way for a procession to harmonious unification.
