AboutTenderpixel is pleased to present âIt's gonna work out fine.', a solo-project by artist Lisa Slominski. As Curator of the artist-run gallery since the fall of 2010, Slominski approaches her curatorial and artistic practices with an instinctive use of interiors. âIt's gonna work out fine.' will show a new body of work that investigates the meditative and seductive attributes of decoration through material and installation. The artist systematically fragments representations of physical, cyber and sacred space, conflating these newly disjointed arenas with her personal queries into the comforting nature of anthropomorphisation.
Slominski's focal work in the exhibition âPookie' is an installation comprised of over 100 laser-cut Perspex symbols positioned from floor to ceiling and implements the artist's ongoing exploration of pattern techniques. The accompanied print series are flocked; an allusion to luxury via Slominski's research of Victorian period velvet wallpaper. Slominski's motivations are suggestive of interior design techniques for domestic, commercial and religious spaces: she evokes recognition of the viewer's experiences, her mitigations then disrupt the familiarity. By shifting the context and scale of ready-made materials she attempts to simulate an innovative sense of spatial solace, simultaneously for herself and the audience.
Lisa Slominski (b. 1981) is an American artist currently living and working in London.
