Andrew Schoultz in New York

MMG’s Andrew Schoultz will have his third solo exhibition at New York’s Morgan Lehman Gallery this fall. Titled “New Work,” the exhibition will open September 5, 2013 and run through October 12th, with an opening reception for the artist on September 5th from 6 – 8pm.

Says the gallery:

Often re-appropriating objects laden with cultural and historical implications, Schoultz provocatively confronts significant socio-political issues. In Para Trooping Skull Ship (2013), a green sky of $7,000 in shredded US currency cradles a ship with skull painted flags. Meditation Under Stress (2013) also resonates deeply with issues of corporate and political greed and excess, as, in his signature style, an actual American flag appears to drip or bleed in gold. Images of thrashing waters, erupting volcanoes and distressed trees are also prevalent in his new work, reminding us of nature’s devastating fury and recalling the catastrophic realities of global warming. It is through the pulsing repetition of this historically loaded imagery, as it continues to be redefined in the face of a contemporary world, that Schoultz’s cultural, political and environmental commentary can accurately reflect the turmoil of today’s America.

Running concurrently with his solo show at the Monterey Art Museum (CA), this exhibition is surely not to be missed!
