(September 24 – October 22)

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 creates works that speak to the vaguely familiar. There is a sense of delight and joy in the in the shapes and colors that inform her pieces, a sense of hominess and comfort. The need to nest is a by-product of her unique cross-cultural perspective. Linda is a child of two ethnicities—Vietnamese and Mexican. She is a first generation American whose talent and creatively enabled her to craft a dynamic visual language. 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 continues to explore the possibilities of line and textured surface. Born in 1989, Erne, as he prefers to be called, studied at San Alejandro Academia de Bellas Artes, graduate later from the Instituto Superior de Arte in 2015 and was chosen to present his work in the 2015 Havana Biennial.

Erne’s work is deeply embedded in the painterly process, particularly the level of conscious control an artist has over the final outcome. His materials take the shape of tube like objects punctured with various holes to hold brushes and pencils. 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. The results are aesthetically beautiful and theoretically fascinating. The artist has recently moved to working on veneer, allowing the natural lines of wood to condition the movement of his homemade devices.*
