Mineral Spirit

at Laurel Gitlen,
122 Norfolk St.

"Mineral Spirit" brings together artists Kyle Thurman, Nancy Lupo, Sean Paul, Eric Sidner and Lauren Silva. Standouts include Lupo's multimedia sculptures, which bring humor to the forefront of this exhibition. Returning to the Rubbermaid Brute trashcan seen in her contribution to MoMA PS1's recent showcase of emerging artists, "Taster's Choice," she adds such disparate elements as artificial lemons and toilet paper to the container, creating highly sensual, playful forms. Paul's contribution consists of imagery the artist pulled from advertisements, cropped and printed onto vinyl-coated fiberglass. The screens hang from the gallery's ceiling and subdivide the space; their predominantly black hues complement the industrial yellows of Lupo's work.
