Exhibition on view: June 4 - 30, 2015
Gitana Rosa Gallery is pleased to present Pink Stereos, a solo show of new paintings by artist and musician Brett Wintle opening June 4, 2015 and on view through June 30, 2015. Inspired by everything from fashion magazines to early Miami Vice episodes, the large-scale work pairs abstract geometric color with expressive lines common in fashion illustration. The size of Wintle's canvases allows for minute detail and impulsive brush work, and the subjects could easily inhabit the world of “The Chauffer” video by Duran Duran or grace the cover of the “Interview” magazine by Andy Warhol. All of the art was made during the summer months and therefore, is heavily influenced by coastal living.
Brett Wintle was born in New Jersey in 1978 and has lived in Williamsburg, Brooklyn since 2001. Ignoring labels such as pop art or fashion illustration, his work is colorful and vibrant with a touch of the melancholy. This is his first solo exhibition at Gitana Rosa Gallery.
