BOOGIE WOOGIE // Andrew Mazorol // 11.17.16 – 12.22.16

Andrew Mazorol — Boogie Woogie

One-half of the locally ignited collaborative duo AMTK, Andrew Mazorol returned from NYC for his first solo gallery show. 9 paintings of “various paints” on various surfaces offer a fresh blast on some familiar themes. Shellac and symmetrical presentation brought a Wild West vibe to the inky snakes in the BackRoom. The new paintings and drawings were punctuated with the relief of Polka-Dot Mask and fat Porky pig head. Conical hats on shelves in the window suggested a circus milliner shop to passers-by.

An eruption of inspiration upon audiencing Laurie Van Wieren’s dance performance Temporary Action Theory at the Southern Theater led to the craving to extend the experience with an artist conversation at H+N. Sean Smuda moderated a full house session with Van Wieren and her collaborators including Heidi Eckwall, Katelyn Farstad, Non Edwards, Judith Howard.

H+N MAGAZINE ISSUE#2 includes a review of Mazorol’s Boogie Woogie by Sean Smuda, an interview between Ryan Fontaine and Lighting Designer Heidi Eckwall, images of Van Wieren’s Temporary Action Theory performance, and Mazorol’s creepy baby doll that has since taken up permanent residence in the H+N Bathroom.
