The ART LOT is proud to present “MEDIA MIX x4” featuring the work of Cynthia Lawson Jaramillo, Babs Reingold, John Roach and Mary Schiliro.

Cynthia Lawson Jaramillo starts with the notion of photography that can capture and freeze time. As a starting point, she photographs urban spaces such as airport terminals, busy city streets or any place that has a flow of people. She then layers images on Plexiglas, subtly capturing the flow of time. Lawson Jaramillo’s light boxes will be plugged in every day from 1-11pm, and are best viewed once the sun is starting to set.  The artist wishes to thank Mazzat for electrical access.

Babs Reingold has made a large structure reminiscent of a clothes line, but suspended are not clothes but a variety of materials that act as signifiers for memory and time. The piece is a beautiful metaphor on the relationship of support and the supported.

John Roach has a long history with combining materials, processes and light/sound to create three-dimensional collages. In some way, his work is a comment on and a foil to the extraordinary mash-up of contemporary life, with no small dash of humor.

Mary Schiliro’s work poses the question, what is a painting? How does it work? And how far can one push that definition before it becomes something else? Her installation, a hanging plane of Mylar that she perforates and dips in paint, is sited in the corner, which is transformed into more than the meeting of two planes. The painting hangs like a three-dimensional object demonstrating gravity, all while inconspicuously functioning as her picture plane.

The ART LOT is located at 206 Columbia Street at the corner of Sackett Street in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The exhibition is on view 24/7. For further information, contact curator Jim Osman at cohnosman@earthlink.net.
