About

Gallery Henoch artist Mel Leipzig has dedicated his career to painting people in their environments. For more than 40 years he has been painting portraits of people around New Jersey and New York, portraits of friends, family and artists, all suspended in their common, everyday pursuits.
These portraits are as much about the backgrounds they are painted against as their human subjects: artists in their studios, actors in tech rehearsal under a grid of spotlights, academics in offices piled to the ceiling with books and crumpled papers -- everything in a Leipzig is painted with an almost hallucinogenic intensity of detail, just as he sees it.
His work is collected by numerous Museums, including the Whitney in New York.
