Out Of Town Guests: Rachel Vanderzwet, Mandy Lyn Perez & Nathalie Quagliotto

Exhibition Opening: June 30 @ 7:30pm

Exhibition Date: June 30 - August 1, 2015

Robert Lynds Gallery is pleased to present the work of Rachel Vanderzwet, Mandy Lyn Perez, and Nathalie Quagliotto in the group-exhibition “Out Of Town Guests”. The exhibition will consist of painting, sculpture, and neon works addressing themes of quirk and humor through the artists’ playful approach to art making. The process-based paintings of Vanderzwet and Perez concentrate on the visual signature and language occurring in painting. Guided by intuition and material investigations, their work references quotidian delights while poised on the outskirts of recognition. Quagliotto’s sculpture and neon work creates comical disruptions through the reconfiguration of common public objects associated with disuse, strict social regulations, safety, and risk.

Rachel Vanderzwet is an MFA candidate at the University of Victoria and has an Honours BA in Studio Art from the University of Guelph. Rachel has shown nationally in Guelph, Toronto and Vancouver, is currently living in Victoria and is represented by RLG. Mandy Lyn Perez recently received her BA from the University of California Los Angeles, and lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. Nathalie Quagliotto is a Toronto based conceptual artist, holding a MFA from the University of Waterloo from 2009 and a BFA from Concordia University from 2007.



Sascha Yamashita: Secret Sacred Ritual
Exhibition Opening Reception: June 2 @ 7:30pm 

Exhibition date: June 2 - June 27

The Robert Lynds Gallery is pleased to present the work of Sascha Yamashita. Yamashita’s interdisciplinary solo-exhibition, Secret Sacred Ritual, explores elements of rite within his esoteric ceremonial performance in the construction and deconstruction of the art object. Yamashita transforms the gallery space into a sacrosanct domain to house his series of process-based panels, and for the witnessing of the artifact of his ceremonial practice. Examining secret societies, Yamashita’s work references various religions and sacred cults throughout history through the appropriation of symbols, and challenges the supremacy of the commodified art object.
