Nathan Lumm ‘The Rest of Us’ Exhibit @ Pinkghost

As I’d recently learned from a motivational blurb on the side of Starbucks cup, big cities are pretty impersonal places. Luckily, there are certain things that make cities smaller, such as (ahem) Craigslist’s Missed Connections and the artwork of Floridian artist Nathan Lumm, who opens his solo exhibit, ‘The Rest of Us,’ on March 31st at Pinkghost. Colouring his work with populist themes, Lumm has painted a series of portraits of people passed by – and perhaps forgotten – on a daily basis. He has assembled a collection of simple-yet-effective paintings depicting a wide array of familiar faces, and they seem to be genuinely as endearing (as opposed to bleeding-heart sappy) as they are diverse. Go check it out if you’re in Florida!
