Back in the day, artists Andrew Mazorol and Ryan Fontaine were roommates and bandmates. From the underground/punk venue Medusa on the West Bank, they investigated through music the social and cultural realities in which they lived and worked, all while watching each other develop as visual artists. They’ve since exhibited together six times. Now Fontaine runs his own gallery, Hair + Nails, with innovative dancer and choreographer Kristin Van Loon. Mazorol lives in Brooklyn. They’re reuniting for this show, in which their rich, textural work—rife with pattern and replete with skewed perspectives over quotidian subject matter—bursts from the gallery walls with boldness. There will be an opening reception on Friday, November 3, from 7 to 10 p.m.
