Marylyn Dintenfass: Souped Up / Tricked Out
New York, NY--Babcock Galleries presents Marylyn Dintenfass’ solo exhibition Souped Up / Tricked Out, a visceral, visual series of oil paintings inspired by a complex love affair with automobiles, on view October 11 – November 18, 2011. Souped Up / Tricked Out brings forth the high-octane, the fleshy, the chrome and chroma of iconic postwar automobiles and their embedded connotations of speed, beauty, identity, and technology. With classic rock and roll lyrics appearing in the titles, and markings reminiscent of looped tire tracks or brilliant headlights undulating across gridded panels, Dintenfass’ paintings speak to a nostalgic sense of freedom. But the translucent layers reveal the dualities that have lurked beneath the brightly painted surfaces all along. In an age of considering consequences and change, Dintenfass reminds us “Things are not what they seem.” Souped Up / Tricked Out will be on view at 724 Fifth Avenue on the 11th Floor from October 11 – November 18, 2011. An opening reception and book signing will be held at the gallery on Thursday, October 13 from 5 – 8pm. Gallery hours are 10am – 5pm Monday – Friday, and Saturdays by appointment.
