ON VIEW THRU DECEMBER 23, 2023: Melinda Laszczynski’s solo exhibition “Your Place or Mine” presents an installation of large paintings, sculpture, digital drawings videos, taking over the space with vibrant colors, large scale and reflective light-activating holographic surfaces.
Laszczynski’s new work gestures towards site, potential, and the spaces between things. Layers of archaeological digging bridge a delicate balance of chaos and cuteness, tension and relief. As records of mark making, the works are tracing manipulated impressions you can get lost in and discover as you move in the space. Resisting depiction in favor of material, she pours bright colors and cannibalized forms from everyday experiences and boldly offers them up as abstractions.
Laszczynski blurs the relationship between the work and the environment, as the walls and architectural feature themselves are integrated within the installation. Material is of the utmost importance, embedding information and feeling through alchemical processes that allows your curiosity to sift through and find reflections of the environment and of the mind.
