The Laundromat would like to announce an upcoming exhibition of paintings and sculptures by Liz Atzberger and photographs by Takashi Matsumoto in a one- day exhibition on Saturday September 19th, 2009. Both artists take natural phenomena, pattern, and repetition as starting point in their work.

Matsumoto’s black and white photographs deconstruct, splice and reconfigure pictures of objects and textures in nature, such as clouds, soil, or tree branches. The results are kaleidoscopic patterns of organic imagery that reference geometric abstraction.

Matsumoto lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. His work was recently featured in a solo exhibition at SPICA Art in Tokyo. This will be his first show in the United States.

Inspired by natural phenomena such as electromagnetism and emergent growth patterns, Liz Atzberger creates sculptures and paintings in which simple processes repeat or are built up in layers that evolve into complex patterns. The resulting pieces are unruly, brightly colored plastic landscapes. Employing dyed plastic, zip ties, rubber bands, and spandex, the work borders on seductive and slick, yet it is more gaudy and gloppy than fashionable.

Her paintings, drawings and mixed media works have been exhibited in venues across the United States and abroad. She is currently an Instructor of Foundations in the Department of Art and Art History at Florida Atlantic University and splits her time between Florida and New York.

The Laundromat is an artist-curated exhibition space.
