Jessicka Addams, Lindsey Way, and Lori Nelson

That Which Does Not Kill You.....

May 9th to June 8th, 2014


Jessicka Addams Jessicka Addams Florida-born, Los Angeles-based artist (also known as surname-free Jessicka) has combined her fascination with Goth culture, all things John Waters, religious iconography, and cats, in her current body of work titled, "That which does not kill you.....". Her work provides an exploration of identity, vulnerability, and loss of innocence while maintaining an element of absurdity that lightens the heaviness of her melancholy sculptures and paintings. The self-taught artist is also the founding member and singer of such seminal indie rock bands Jack Off Jill and scarling. She is also the resident curator and researcher at Dark Dark Science. Addams has shown with us in all three of the Tiny Trifecta's and this will be her first time showing a complete body of work in Brooklyn! Jessicka will be also be releasing her first limited edition print, and Scarling's "Who Wants To Die For Art?" Limited edition 7", available on Cotton Candy Pink vinyl exclusively for the Cotton Candy Machine.

Lindsey Way was born in Dunoon, Scotland. She attended Pratt Institute, where she studied fine art and illustration. She then worked as a window display artist throughout New York City and assisted the prolific painter Ron English. Her work has been in CBGB's 32nd Anniversary Art Show, "Hung", and the traveling group show, "Draw". After years as a touring musician with the band Mindless Self Indulgence, she has been inspired by world art culture, and other influences include Mary Blair, Henry Darger and Georges Melies.

Lori Nelson
is a Utahn living in New York City going on ten years now. She paints in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn and maneuvers her bike through the cobblestone streets, under and around the cathedral bases of the massive Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. Lori loves to stand on the edge of the East River to see what has been hauled up out of the giant old garbage dump deep under the grey ribbon of water; one hundred year old china shards, rounded off factory bricks, chickenwire glass....New Yorkers of yestercentury, she is examining your refuse. In her work she strives to take ownership of the human narrative, but not too much so. Lori thinks of paintings almost as film-stills from really good and horrible movies that a lot of people feel strongly about for various reasons. Sometimes linking these stills up to create a larger narrative. The human story, with its layers of garbage, is her favorite read, certainly, and possibly her favorite movie.

Opening Event Friday May 9th
7pm to 11pm
