Sylvan Lionni will
present four new hard-edged abstractions that emphasize his labor-intensive
painting process, exploring forms of signage and the influence of
everyday consumerist fixtures. Fascinated by the banal objects of
daily life – faded American flag stickers, lotto tickets and
computer keypads – Lionni translates this source material
into his own lineage of dead-pan picture making.
Lionni received his MFA from Bard College, NY and BA from SVA, NY.
His solo exhibitions include Rebecca Ibel Gallery, Columbus, OH;
Fusebox, Washington, DC and Rome Arts, Brooklyn, NY. Born in Cuckfield,
England, he currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
