MARY JO LOMBARDO
My current work involves incorporating the figure into a series called Balancing Act. The figure is placed in various settings that depict balance or lack thereof. Much of the work is mixed media and involves layering which is a key element of the work. Built up and torn down drawings and prints often serve as the matrix for the pieces which are metaphoric in nature. At the same time I am working on video, currently preparing a piece for Beechwood Arts in Westport CT for their Smackdown II: Bach vs. Glass event mid month. My work can be seen at the open studios at 411 New York Avenue as a member of the Tuesday Night Group located in the studios of Micheline Klagsbrun and Raye Leith, Sunday, May 18, 12-6 at 411 New York Avenue, 3rd Floor.
