Romantic and haunted, brilliant and decaying is
Cuba. Kopeikin Gallery presents the work of two artists who engage the
subject with dual exhibitions and book signings.

up is Jeff Milstein with his series Cuba on the Streets. Bright
flashes of color vibrate through street scenes, store fronts, alleys,
and on autos. Other images feature cluttered libraries, bedrooms that
look like shrines, even sparse to near naked interiors.

back later this summer to meet the artist, Simone Lueck. Lueck's
series, Cuba TV is an intimate look at interiors and the television
culture of Cuba. The old boxes with faded screens are often second, or
maybe third-hand imports but are never the less treated as sacred.
Often adorned by flowering pots, family portraits, or jumbled with other
utilitarian items the tv is central.
