The Artist at Work

Zara at Long Beach

I strongly urge people to check out Mel Leipzig's show, "Paintings of Modern Life," at Gallery Henoch. On Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the exhibit, Mr. Leipzig will be painting in the gallery. Besides observing the artist at work, you can absorb the entrancing images as well. Mr. Leipzig depicts people in their self-created environments -- sometimes appearing more like cages of their id. The above painting is one of my favorites from this show, but it's already been sold (damn!). Gallery Henoch is located at 555 25th St., NYC. The show ends Dec. 3.
