On Au gust 17th\, the Lyons Wier Gallery debuts the group exhibition ‘Additional Matter.’ The collection showcases recent pieces by emerging artists whose w ork explores the nature of material and its effects once transformed. In th e act of creation\, artists have always extended the boundaries of the mate rial used for creation. The five artists participating in ‘Additional Matte r’- Myles Bennett\, Zac Braun\, Timothy Gasbarro\, John F Lynch and Christo pher Stout\, explore materials in their minor effects: changing the form of the raw canvas\, taking threads apart\, or examining the affect of differe nt materials when in contact with one another. 


Curated by May Shetrit\, ‘Additional Matter’ assembles five Brooklyn-based artists on the largest stage of their new careers. The exhibit surveys art made by yo ung artists\, validating the possibilities of continuous exploration of mat erial and form. The show will remain on view until September 5th.


The artists pay great attention to the individual form of their sub jects\, either through manipulation or through transformation. In contrast to the work of the great masters of 1960s and 1970s like Otto Muehl\, Alex Hubbard\, Yves Klein — who explored the nature of their materials by perfor ming rough or extreme changes on them — the pieces on display in ‘Additiona l Matter’ examine the subtleties of material in greater detail to create a different whole. In so doing\, the artists grant a narrative to their trans formed material\; or perhaps\, capture a narrative that was always there\, living within the raw matter.

An intensive amount of repetition and meticulous attention to detail are at the core of many of these works. Either by fortune or fate\, the essential notions of substance and manner r emain within them.

Expecting the unexpected\, ‘Additional Matter ’ creates a sensitive narrative. It recounts the gradual changes being brou ght by the artists to a hectic art world\; changes wrought by their incredi ble ability to take into consideration the details that determine our exper ience.
