Mindy Solomon Gallery is pleased to present ‘Cut Rate Paradise,’ a new exhibition of paintings by Ezra Johnson. This exhibition is inspired by Florida. The group of paintings and video reflect the mid-twentieth century promise of a sunny paradise for all, which ultimately loses its sparkle. Although Johnson is not trying to make a negative statement about the American Dream; he mostly presents these qualities as beautiful and mysterious.
Ezra Johnson is a painter and animator based in Tampa, Florida and New York. He was born in 1975 in Wenatchee, Washington. He received an MFA in Painting from Hunter College, New York City, in 2006 and has exhibited his work at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, SITE Santa Fe, and the ICA in Philadelphia, as well as galleries nationally and internationally.
