Opening reception: Friday, April 6th, from 6 - 9 PM

Murray Specktor — owner/director of Evocative Arts Gallery — is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibition featuring the engaging mixed-media paintings of Michael Hinkle. A native of Palm Springs, California, Michael Hinkle’s artwork reaches out to a diverse international audience.

Many of Michael’s pieces begin with a basic nude photograph; often a torso shot of himself, and evolve in a natural flow from there. The photos are adhered to the canvas and altered with a mixed-media process that involves the inclusion of purely abstract elements, adding both texture and color to the overall piece, and the very effective use of graffiti-like imagery to help tell the story and further render each finished piece as a special moment captured in time.

Hinkle's paintings often deal with current events, the subjective nature of art, and issues such as censorship. The tasteful erotic appeal of his paintings are sure to be pleasing to many viewers.

ABSTRACT ART
“The abstract, especially in those rough sketches, is very important to me, perhaps because of my advertising background, where layout is so important. Sometimes those first few lines cut the paper into such satisfying shapes that I don’t want to go on, but I always do, adding nostrils and nipples and bootstraps until I have filled the paper up as usual.” — Tom of Finland
