DESCRIPTION
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.

Sylvan 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.
