Inna Babaeva
I use objects that are widely available for consumption and re-animate them into a visually grotesque and functionally deprived subsistence. I transform the familiar items of home design and furniture by inducing biomorphic shapes with psychedelic colors. My work contemplates the absurdities of contemporary times, with its wasteful mass production and overwhelming cultural uniformity. It is an attempt to introduce the role of art as a potential challenge to our bland social tastes and culturally accepted commodity values.
Inna Babaeva’s recent 2016 solo show was held at Tiger Strikes Asteroid (TSA) in New York, and, earlier, a two-person show with Lauren Clay at Underdonk in Brooklyn. Her work was exhibited at Anna Kustera Gallery, Brian Morris Gallery, Dustin Yellin Gallery, and at the Brooklyn Academy of Music among others. Her work has been featured in ARTnews, ArtFCity, Artnet Magazine, Sleek Magazine (Berlin), We Heart Magazine (London). She is a recipient of the Sharpe-Walentas Foundation Studio program fellowship, and she is a Rema Hort Mann Foundation Grant nominee. Born in Lviv, Ukraine, Inna Babaeva lives and works in New York City.

Elisa Lendvay
Though I explore the form and content of my art in different ways, both are related to the same search and internal vision —a poetic and visceral probing of matter, materiality and movement, and a way of making physical what I know and don’t know. My process is multifaceted as I work in different series that include floor, wall, table top sculptures and assemblages, drawings, and shaped paintings of experimental materials. I often alter and combine found objects eroded by the elements as a way of recycling and responding to narratives of the city, nature, consumption, place and memory. The materials influence the forms and color so that the formation of each piece is not a struggle against the medium, but a digging down into the essence of a physical moment.
Elisa Lendvay (b. 1975, Dallas, TX) received her MFA from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, Bard College and a BFA from the University of Texas at Austin and Bennington College. Recent exhibitions include solo exhibits at Fred Giampietro Gallery, New Haven, Connecticut and Jason McCoy Gallery, New York, and group shows at Kansas Gallery, New York; Asya Geisberg Gallery, New York; Rare Gallery, New York; Lesley Heller Workspace, New York; TSA, Brooklyn; Daily Operation, Brooklyn; Orgy Park, Brooklyn; Underdonk, Brooklyn; and Klaus Von Nichtssagend, New York, among others. Lendvay has been awarded honors from the Edward F. Albee Foundation, the New York Foundation of the Arts, the Santa Fe Art Institute, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Center, the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts, the Vermont Studio School, the Dallas Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, and the Marie Walsh Art Foundation. Currently, she is an Adjunct Professor at Montclair State University. She lives and works in Queens and Brooklyn.
