That 70's Show. From May 9th through Jun 2009.  Harold Golen GalleryHarold Golen Gallery opens the exhibition That 70's Show this month featuring artists Netherland, Ken Bernstein and Jason Snyder.

Artist and gallery curator David "Netherland" van Alphen lives and works in Chicago, Illinois. Though David's family was from Holland, he was born in Toronto, and has been in Chicago for the last eight years. Being a child of the 70's has influenced him greatly and is reflected in most of his work. Juxtaposing images, his color choices and the new modern context comes through his nostalgic imagery and helps to isolate and enhance them. David has shown at many galleries throughout the U.S. and sold out his first solo show last January.

"As a baby boomer growing up in the suburbs of Miami, the majority of my childhood was spent in front of a television.,” remembers artist Ken Bernstein. "I sat on the Florida room floor with a fold out TV tray and a bowl of Cap'n Crunch as the only separation between myself and the television screen. My eye sockets were black holes providing the portal for the right side of my brain to absorb all energy and matter produced by the flicker fusion television transmission of Outer Limits, Adams Family, Star Trek, Man from Uncle, Invaders, Shindig, Batman, 77 Sunset Strip, Time Tunnel, Lost in Space and all the other cult status programming. Due to long term exposure of the Television's electro magnetic radiation, I mutated into a robotic space probe. The Voyager 1 of POP, speeding in a solar wind through interstellar space to gather information on popular culture. Fortunately, I have some ability to translate my information to canvas utilizing the brilliant vivid colors of acrylics, so others can see and feel what I see and feel".

Jason Robert Snyder spent most of his childhood on a farm in Pennsylvania, studying his surroundings and formulating ideas of the world around him. He began transferring his ideas through oil paint while attending the Pennsylvania State University as an Architectural Engineering student. Completely self-taught, through trial and error in the years since, he has developed his unique style and interpretation of reality to what it is today. In each one of his pieces, he uses vibrant colors and distorted figures to convey one idea about the human spirit. Currently, in addition to fine art, Jason is a custom framer at Carmen's Gallery and Design Studio in Solomons, Maryland, as well as a freehand pinstriper. Jason resides in Solomons with his wife, Laura; his dog, Leia; and his '53 Buick.

Pooch and Paul Torres. From Oct 11th through Nov 1st, 2008.  Harold Golen GalleryRaised on a diet of Walt Disney World , Ray Harryhausen films, H. P. Lovecraft novels, Comics, and Florida tourist traps, Pooch paints images that seem to exist in a bizarre afterlife. Early on, Pooch was exposed to artists and illustrators, such as Frank Frazetta, MC Escher, Dali, Bosch and HR Giger. A self- taught artist, Pooch owes much of his painting skills to over ten years of daily tattooing and drawing. His art is a visual cocktail mix of Far East mysteries, the magic of European painting with a shot of tattoo culture, shaken and stirred, and served up in a souvenir tiki skull. (more…)

Subjective Reality. From Dec 6th, 2007 through Jan 5th, 2008.

Harold Golen Gallery. Miami Arts
Harold Golen Gallery, located in Wynwood Art District is opening this December the group exhibition Subjective Reality featuring twenty-five artists. When thinking of psychedelic art, most of us remember the rock posters and comic books of the 1960's and 70's. Fueled in part by a surge in the use hallucinogenic drugs, the function of western psychedelic art was largely to support or advertise rock music and the counter culture. However, for thousands of years, many cultures such as those found in South America and Southeast Asia produced very psychedelic art for religious reasons. (more…)
