Pair of 20th century tables. One remains in its found, raw wood condition; the other has been completely painted. Displaying them side by side, I intend to demonstrate the transformative power of paint. Changes to color, surface pattern, and sheen shift our perceptions of proportion and value.

UNNATURAL HISTORY: Lisa DiClerico, Anna Mikhailovskaia & Ellen Uzane Schneiderman at Jeffrey Leder Gallery
Opening Reception at Jeffrey Leder Gallery January 22 from 6pm - 8pm.
On view through February 14, 2016
The artists included in this exhibition engage in their personal deconstruction of a visual history, subverting the experience of seeing and creating something entirely unnatural. As they reconstitute a visual experience, taking it apart and putting it back together in their paintings, what is lost and what remains? Starting with definable objects in the world, be it a weathered and graffitied billboard or an eroded mountain-scape or archaic architecture, each engages in their own subversion of the chronology of history and the effects of time passing to create something new and undefinable.
Lisa DiClerico's current work explores weathered billboards and lacerated NYC subway posters as living documents of changing environment, neighborhood, society and self. Beautiful, accidental compositions exist in the framework of these structures and environmental effects create extraordinary dècollage. History reveals itself through layers of ad media remnants, adhesive and blank space as affected by age, weather and human interference. Graffiti commentary and clever wordplay add text, both legible and hidden, with cryptic, political, poetic or personal messages which trigger poignant memories and critical thinking.
Lisa is a mixed media artist living and working in Long Island City, Queens. She received her BFA in Restoration from The Fashion Institute of Technology and continued post-baccalaureate studies in art history and restoration in Florence, Italy.
Anna Mikhailovskaia's work can be described as 'nonobjective art based in objective reality.' Drawing from such broad subjects as human origins, natural history, comparative religion and physics, her works are equally puzzling to the mind as they are visually engaging to the eye. Employing many tools of visual wit, Anna's work probes deeper questions about human experience as well as underlying questions about the natural world.
Anna is a multidisciplinary artist working in Brooklyn NY. She holds a Sculpture MFA from Rhode Island School of Design and Philosophy degree from Brandeis University.
Ellen Uzane Schneiderman's works employ a kind of subverted archaeological process where she both creates the dig site and engages in the digging.These handmade paper excavation sites - built by layering colored pulps on top of each other - are ripe for exploration. Pouring, painting, cutting, and tearing into the surface evokes remnants of earth, moldy detritus, sweeping vistas, and imagined landscapes. The denuded paper remains are reincorporated into drawings for further examination and classification.
Ellen works in Long Island City, NY. Most recently, she was in the SHIFT residency at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts and she works at Henry Street Settlement. She has a BA from Brown University in Community Health and Visual Arts.
