Paul Sydorenko
July 14 – August 3, 2012

Opening Reception: 7-10 PM, Saturday, July 14th

“When i was young, there was a fort in the woods at the end of my street. All of the neighborhood kids knew about it, but no one knew who built it? Maybe it was left over from the older kids who had grown up and moved on to driving cars and dating? It had definitely seen better days, yet this ramshackle fort made of old scrap wood and plastic tarping was magical to us. Even with the soiled carpet flooring, cigarette butts, and beer cans; it was awesome. Maybe that’s what made it awesome… it was an escape. It was adventure. It was the start of us trying to act like adults or trying to act cool. Becoming soldiers or looking at water damaged penthouse magazines that had sat through storms, winters, god knows what? It was there for at least ten years. And then one day, just as it magically arrived, it was gone. I still think about that fort today. I think about how cool it was to sit in that fort and just imagine… imagine that anything and everything was possib le.” – Paul Sydorenko

Paul’s latest solo exhibition, Fort, brings those memories back to life in an ambitious series of installation, mixed media and conceptual works. On view for three weeks only at our downtown gallery, Fort opens with a reception 7-10 PM on Saturday, July 14th followed by an after-party at Lava Lounge 10 PM – ? AM.
