The Truth of Consequences by Mel Greet at Bruce Lurie

Bruce Lurie Gallery

Feb. 9, 2019, 06:00 pm

2736 S. La Cienega Blvd.

Mel Greet, child actor turned movie marketing executive turned artist, pulls no punches when telling it like it is. From gun violence to social media, we are living in a time where the truth is being stretched in multiple directions. Greet demands we take notice and realize there is a consequence for complacency.

“Sculptural social surrealism” best describes the work by combining conventional objects with social concerns we all must grapple with into unique and powerful conceptual art.

The sense of humor and crisp perceptions are inspired from Magritte, along with the multi-dimensions and contradictions of Man Ray, the political and social import of Ai Wei Wei and the stylistic inventiveness of Italian graphic designer Armando Testa. Each has influenced the way in which Greet observes and records the world.

The power of the connectivity is paramount. Greet encourages the viewer to engage, to understand, to commit, and ultimately – to act.

The Truth of Consequences runs February 9 through 28 at Bruce Lurie Gallery in Los Angeles.
