Christybomb's Exciting New Tapestries at the Lazy Susan Gallery in LES
10/7/2016


Lazy Susan Gallery is pleased to present "Acid Free" – a group exhibition of new art by Christybomb, MAVA, and Sally Ko, curated by Jill Conner. The show's title references elusive and, at times, exclusionary boundaries that exist between the realms of art and craft.

Christybomb works by sourcing atypical materials and then layering the combination of craft objects, acrylic paint, and other materials stressing the relationships between shape and color. For this exhibition, she explores a monochromatic palette of white on white, black and grays along with concentric shapes comprised of pipe cleaners and yarn.
