Sneak Peek at "Modern Life"

Mel Leipzig, "Joseph, 2004"

Mel Leipzig is one of my favorite contemporary artists, and Gallery Henoch will be showcasing his latest work in November. The show, called "Paintings of Modern Life," will run from Nov. 10 to Dec. 3. Mr. Leipzig's work depicts people in their self-created environments, with a jaw-dropping attention to detail. If Stanley Kubrick had been a painter, this is what his work might have looked like. An extra bonus: Mr. Leipzig will be painting in the gallery on Wednesdays and Fridays from 11 am to 6 pm through the exhibit. Opening reception is Nov. 10, 6 to 8 pm. Gallery Henoch is located at 555 W. 25th St., NYC.
