Dutch Kills Gallery presents an exhibition by Ellen Schneiderman.

Her mixed media works are influenced by systems that categorize species and specimens, macro and microbiological forms, and her own tendencies to organize, record, and contain. In her paintings, nested rectangles of cut paper house globs of dried paint and create imperfect grids. Inked patterns are covered by poured acyclic mediums to become new images based on actions of chance. Chunks of paint and mixed color from her palette, often from past paintings (failed or realized), become collected sediment. Entangled painterly gestures are obstructed and revealed by dovetailed shapes. These involved processes and meticulous constructions are created with a deep consideration for the painting’s physical surface and materiality.
