    regarding discards | Stephanie Martz

    Lawndale is presenting four exhibits this May 8 – June 13, 2009.

    In the John M. O'Quinn Gallery ROUND 3 | Kevin Curry, Amber Eagle and El Franco Lee II Lawndale Artist Studio Program ExhibitionIn the Grace R. Cavnar Gallery, regarding discards | Stephanie Martz.  In the Project Space, Out of Site | Noah Simblist. In the Mezzanine Gallery Washington Avenue: Forgotten to Gentrified | Robert Sennhauser.

    Stephanie Martz’s work deals with discarded traces of individuals. Through signatures and notes individuals leave their marks on books that are then discarded. Clothing becomes stained and then lines the rows of hanging clothes in second hand stores. Interiors of abandoned house destroy themselves like a disease does to the body it inhabits. What was once prized begins to decay, becomes stained, is no longer relevant to an individual’s identity, and is left for another (and becomes a part of another’s history). Everything is interconnected. We are connected through genes and diseases just like we are through another’s printed words in a book, and items and wallpaper left behind for decay.
