Artist statement




Abaton Garage is pleased to open its fourth season with recent work by New York artist Stephanie Campos. 1:1/1 Lightning Rock includes paintings, objects and works on paper that engage a variety of signs, symbols and conceptual strategies, from the geometric architecture of Russian Suprematism to the recycling of studio detritus found in Nouveau Réalisme. Campos, best known for her abstract paintings, is intentionally disruptive here, removing objects from their context and reworking them into a new reality that is constantly shifting, a symbolic gestalt of absence “between somewhere and nowhere,” as the artist would say.

Please join us for the opening reception of Lightning Rock at Abaton Garage May 6th from 3-7PM. Jersey City’s own psychedelic-folk explorers Pothole Skinny will perform at 6:00. Refreshments will be served throughout the afternoon/evening. A accompanying brochure with installation shots and a text by Nora Griffin will be available during the course of the exhibition.


Directions to Abaton Garage.

Directions

From NYC take the Newark-bound PATH train to Journal Square. Taxis are available on Kennedy Boulevard, directly in front of the station. The ride to Abaton Garage takes less than five minutes and costs approximately $7. If you prefer to walk, simply stroll down Kennedy Boulevard about 3/4 of a mile, until you reach Gifford Avenue. Then turn right; 100 is in the middle of the block.
