"New York Stories"
December 13 - December 27, 2015
Opening Reception: Sunday Dec. 13 from 2-5pm
The Mark Miller gallery is pleased to present
"New York Stories"
by renowned artist Felipe Galindo, a series of
works created on disposable objects and sketches
of New York City life, created during the past three decades.
Guided by the graphic qualities of throwaway materials
(milk cartons, shopping bags, Chinese food containers,
to name a few,) Galindo's work makes humorous commentaries
on everyday life and comments on today’s consumer society
while celebrating life in the artist’s adopted city.
Galindo’s work gives new life to the debris of our market economy
and creates unique works of art inspired by the beauty and complexity
of castaway objects.
