Two 2011 Inkjet print 20″ x 30″

Gallery Diet is pleased to present Samantha Salzinger’s second solo exhibition at Diet. These works explore the fabricated environment questioning the collective mind of the age, where reality is as malleable as a simulation and a simulation as lifelike as reality. Projecting mysterious places in an era of genesis, the images reference ideologies of popular culture that play to our fantasies, fears, and deires. The metaphoric creation of the idyllic, sublime landscape, act as core unconscious escapism. Weaving together the awe of the grandeur of nature with science fiction, the viewer is dreamer in an imaginary world, optimistic of the future.

Samantha Salzinger graduated with an MFA in photography from Yale University and is a two time winner of the South Florida Cultural Consortium Grant. She has exhibited prolifically throughout South Florida at venues that include Gallery Diet, Locust Projects, The Museum of Art Ft. Lauderdale, and The Girls Club, the private collectin of Francie Bishop Good and David Horovitz where she is part of the permanent collection.

This exhibition will run thru April 2nd, 2011

Regular gallery hours are Tuesday thru Saturday 11 am – 5 pm
