Mixed Greens is thrilled to announce Leah Tinari’s solo exhibition. As the title suggests, Tinari invites the viewer to take a peek inside her personal life and witness the sometimes scandalous revelry enjoyed by her friends and family. For this show, Tinari continues her practice of combining and transforming snapshots to compose celebratory drawings and paintings. Her viewer is privy to the good times in vivid detail
and astounding likeness.
In these newest works, Tinari limits her color palette to black-and-white in a series of photo booth paintings, and amps up her risqué content in colorful, candid party pictures. Tinari’s increased interest in pattern and shading is demonstrated through festive clothing, expressive hair, and swaths of exposed skin. Unbridled moments of pure fun during recent vacations, nights out, birthdays and weddings create an atmosphere of warmth and celebration, leaving the viewer longing to be invited to the next party.
