A chariot of animals threaded by string flee for safety while southern comfort nostalgia is waxed with NYC cynicism, and an American flag is made of match boxes awaiting their stripes to be struck. Cinders Gallery comes to Lump by way of Brooklyn, NY. The artists are made up of a diverse group who have all shown at Cinders in the past and help make up the gallery’s current identity. This group show is inspired by the cultural differences […]

Strawberry Crystaline – Michael Salter November “Every city and town has a street, never downtown, lined with strip malls, fast food, and discount stores. Here, I am inspired. It is the most prolific evidence of our current culture. As an obsessive observer I am fascinated, repulsed and hypnotized by the tidal wave of imagery that our visual culture crashes down upon us every day. I challenge this onslaught and examine it.

Off Season 07.10.2005 – 30.10.2005 Lump gallery/projects is very pleased to present Off Season an exhibition of new work by New York artist Becca Albee. The exhibition consists of five works considering the idea of expectation.

The rinks are overgrown and reveal their un-maintained state in the form of duck ponds, unkempt fields and weed-fillled cement slabs. Compulsory Figures is a fun video montage exploring the realm of in-between moments. A […]
