“Though beauty is, with the most apt similitude, I had almost said with the most literal truth, called a flower that fades and dies almost in the very moment of its maturity; yet there is, methinks, a kind of beauty which lives even to old age; a beauty that is not in the features, but, if I may be allowed the expression, shines through them. As it is not merely corporeal it is not the object of mere sense, nor is it to be discovered but by persons of true taste and refined sentiment.”
-Fulke Greville, Maxims, Characters, and Reflections
In the gallery’s Project Space, Bruce Kates explores mixed media in his installation ‘Mumbo Jumbo.’ The artist shares an appreciation for the abandoned and neglected. With a sense of vision and sensitivity, they create works of art that galvanize an investigation of the unornamented as art. ‘Mumbo Jumbo’ will be on view December 19th, 2015 – January 30th, 2016 at Mindy Solomon Gallery’s new location in Little River, 8397 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami. An Opening Reception with the artists will take place Saturday, December 19th, from 7-9pm at the gallery. Festive libations will be served.
