Jessicka Addams and Lindsey Way

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 releasing her first limited edition print through Sloan Fine Art that will be available at the opening May 9th. Scarling's "Who Wants To Die For Art?" Limited edition 7" will also be available the night of the opening. 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.
