Yellow Peril Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition at LightSpace Studios as part of Bushwick Open Studios (BOS), a three day arts and culture festival from May 31 – June 2, 2013, celebrating the community’s vibrant arts scene with the goal of fostering dialogue and collaboration between local artists and residents. The festival, now in its seventh year, is hosted by the volunteer organization Arts in Bushwick (AiB) and is free and open to the public.
Featured artists from Yellow Peril at LightSpace during BOS:
Johnny Adimando creates art that speaks to a constantly shifting and material reality. Adimando’s work features a wide variety of mediums and spectacles, textures and fields. (johnnyadimando.com)
Naomi Campbell is an interdisciplinary artist whose work bridges a strong connection with her background in the sciences, whether it is on the conceptual level, in translation or through the choice of material. (naomicampbelltheartist.com)
Jamey Morrill is a sculptor whose work has become increasingly sprawling and site-specific, with emphasis on mass-produced materials and organic forms. Often using commonplace materials, such as plastic bottles, chicken wire, and duct tape, Morrill constructs sculptures that are outwardly cerebral and systematic but that are fundamentally random and irrational. (jameymorrill.com)
Paul Myoda is inspired by the underlying logic and mathematical principles of the natural world. He applies them to his work with new media, technology and industrial materials. The result is compositions of light, motion, and form that find a balance and a beauty between the organic and the built. Regularly exhibited both nationally and internationally, his sculptures and installations are known for their elegance and their expression of organic forces through artificial materials and systems.

Rodrigo Nava is a process-oriented sculptor with a focus on explosive-forming techniques. Nava explores the interaction between the intentional hand of the sculpture, the material quality of steel and experimental explosive processes that alter the form created by hand. (rodrigonava.com)
Allison Paschke creates sculptural and installation work that is interactive. Sometimes movement through space and light affects the piece; sometimes the interaction is directly physical. Paschke is looking for a present tense engagement, not a remote contemplation. Her process is an intuitive balancing of the tensions between opposing forces. (allisonpaschke.com)
Yellow Peril at LightSpace: Bushwick Open Studios will be on display from Friday, May 31, until Sunday, June 2, 2013.
