New Lobby installation, Ruth Jampol “Golden Age”
Solo(s) Project House presents its fifth annual Summer Residency Program featuring New York based artist Liz Atzberger. The gallery will remain closed for July and August, allowing Atzberger to create in the space, developing a new body of work that will be exhibited in both Newark, New Jersey and Manhattan annex, R.JAMPOL PROJECT(s). The Newark exhibition will open with a reception Saturday, September 12th from 7 – 10pm, followed by a solo exhibition at R.JAMPOL PROJECT(s) in October.
Atzberger’s works use traditional art materials as well as those of consumer culture, low fashion, industrial castoffs and simple science experiments, taking the form of painting, drawing, installation and photography. They investigate and employ an excessive and specific materiality, down to the chemical and molecular level. The artist will create a wall based site-specific installation in the space over the course of the residency, and will create smaller scale works related to the main installation. Other events and collaborations are planned, including a Steamroller Monoprint Session and a catalog.
The artist has a BFA in Painting from the Ohio State University, and an MFA in Painting from the Tyler School of Art. From 2011-2014 she was a co- director and co-curator of AIRPLANE gallery in Bushwick. She currently works and lives in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
Ruth Jampol “Golden Age”
Solo(s) Project House will present a new lobby installation by visiting artist Ruth Jampol. The installation “Golden Age” will be on view from Saturday, September 12, 2015 – October 18, 2015. A reception for the artist will be held Saturday, September 12, 2015 from 7 – 10pm.
“Golden Age” is an exploration of timing. What timing holds in a certain space of one’s life, what the general expectations are, and what society demands from age, experience or preconditioned benchmark for life. The “Golden Age” is a graphic equation for expectations vs. reality. Jampol uses a medley of media to create a 360 degree wall piece which echos her consistent approach to production. Her wall drawing are overly gestural, colored and warped to radiate a dream-like atmosphere.

She has participated in numerous student exhibitions in collaboration with the university throughout the duration of her education. The artist recently had a solo exhibition of new paintings at Burroughs .Welcome Gallery in Greenville, North Carolina.
