Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Room With a View, a group exhibition curated by Jennifer Rizzo. The exhibition brings together a group of ten artists whose work captures simultaneous perspectives and truths. Looking through mirrors, windows and various vessels, the artists interpret forms of escape within the already established escape of the canvas. At times playful, others menacing; traveling through the past, present and future, the viewer is transported between diverse places, creating new encounters and possibilities. After all, what is a mirror or window but a portal into an alternate perspective?

Lizzie Gill is a multimedia artist whose work explores themes of
domesticity in a contemporary context. Through a variety of mediums she illustrates a time warp, composed of everyday life, human agency and “post feminist” contemporary society. Her work is a nostalgic look at the past and innocence with a twist, prompting one to question their sense of time and culture. Catherine Haggarty explores forgotten elements of art history through the depiction of animals, interiors and human subjects. The artist’s work explores the idiosyncratic ways in which drawing and writing relate to painting, drawing influence from diverse sources. Minyoung Kim’s tongue-in-cheek narratives feature anthropomorphic domestic objects in ironic situations. It is in this ambivalence, both light and serious, that she explores and reveals her inner self. Robert Minervini is an artist working in painting, mural painting, printmaking, and site-specific public art. His work examines spatial environments and notions of utopia in large-scale cityscapes, landscapes, and still-life arrangements.

Soyeon Shin’s paintings are a surrealistic mirror image of her mind, which reflect scenes from the artists memories. Through whimsical compositions of mischievous animals in urban environments, the artist offers a glimpse of the city through her eyes. Tracey Snelling utilizes sculpture, photography, video and installation to give her impression of a place, its people and a locale. Often, the cinematic image stands in for real life as it plays out behind windows in the buildings, sometimes creating a sense of mystery, other times stressing the mundane. Snelling’s work derives from sociology, voyeurism, & geographical & architectural location. Melody Tuttle depicts pensive female figures, often found lost in thought. The artist’s paintings of faceless women are both autobiographical and representative of an archetype. Tuttle paints these figures in private moments, which place the viewer in the position of quiet interloper. Andrea Villalón self referential work is rooted in introspection and autobiography. Capturing a dreamlike world which feels a step removed from our own, the artists work is full of recurring symbols and focuses on the exploration of self-portrait, sadness and everyday life.

Erin Wright paintings are colored by the classic still-life genre and appear digitally produced, depicting intimate and ruinous relationships between objects and characters that are not present. Through her compositions, Wright explores ideas such as indifference and presentation, examining every detail equivocally. Groupings and relationships between objects are rendered non-hierarchically, becoming blatantly arbitrary with uncanny relationships to their surroundings and contexts. Aaron Zulpo’s story-based work depicts the complex juxtaposition between the man-made and the natural through the use of bright color and pattern. Inspired by films and books, the artists work is both spatially elegant and visually intriguing.

Please join us Saturday, March 18th from 6pm to 8pm for the opening of Room With a View. Some of the artists will be in attendance.

The exhibition will be on view Saturday, March 18th to Saturday, April 8th. For more information, additional images, or exclusive content, please email NYC Director, Jennifer Rizzo at jenn@hashimotocontemporary.com
