A Strange Day in July
October 11th – November 1st, 2008
Opening Reception: October 11th 7 – 10 PM
Gallery Diet is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work by Samantha Salzinger, entitled A Strange Day in July.
In A Strange Day in July Salzinger continues to explore themes of reality and fiction using her hand to create tornadoes, hurricanes, fires, earthquakes, and whirlpools. Salzinger is investigating the contemporary human desire to simulate and romanticize catastrophic events. Painting for us the worst-case scenario in a mesmerizing light.
A Strange Day in July explores these themes via stop animation video alongside the photographic work for which Salzinger is known.
Salzinger graduated in 1997 with an MFA from Yale and has since exhibited at Locust Projects, the recently inaugurated all women’s collection of Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz, the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, and the Wyman Arts Center in Baltimore. She is also a recipient of the South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship and has been reviewed in Art and Auction, Art Papers, The Miami herald, and Arte al Dia.
