APRIL’S GALLERY EXHIBITION

Goya in Tijuana

The restless world that Brooklyn artist Tony Geiger creates encompasses both classical surrealism and more contemporary concerns. Conflict is usually present. These mischievous juxtapositions are attempting to make statements on the human condition, either politically, physically or spiritually. The use of brooding muted colors is designed to heighten their emotional impact. The paintings themselves are rendered in a somewhat realistic style with acute detail. They could easily be dated to earlier times but for subtle clues like a touch of spray paint here or a abstract gesture there. In the end, Tony wants the viewer to be challenged and amused by this mixture of the macabre and the playful. As in folklore, he often uses animals to stand in for humans to create a useful distance between the viewer and the story he is trying to tell.⠀
