The following information was provided by ROOM 83 Spring:

Are you ready for a pre-post-apocalyptic-hallucinatory visual experience? These four artists fearlessly compose and construct vibrant wall-hung and freestanding works in a show called tangerine trees and marmalade skies at ROOM 83 Spring in Watertown, Nov. 10 – Dec. 22.

tangerine trees and marmalade skies with Timothy Kadish, Carol McMahon, Robert Rindler and Judy Riola at ROOM 83 Spring from Nov. 10–Dec. 22.

A reception will be held on Nov. 10, 4-6 p.m. Gallery Hours: Thursdays and Saturdays 1-4 p.m. And always by appointment.

“Picture yourself in a boat on a river…”

Navigating with art through these terrible times.

In a show called tangerine trees and marmalade skies, Carol McMahon, Timothy Kadish, Robert Rindler and Judy Riola formally and colorfully translate and transform elegant and humble materials into sculpture and paintings.

Timothy Kadish fuses encaustic paint with a blow torch onto wood to produce large pierced color and line paintings and emoji-like symbols that invoke superhero insignias.

Carol McMahon  combines poured acrylic and found furry stuffed animal parts into tiny abstract paintings that recall Olitski and Rothko.

Robert Rindler recycles many-hued plastic salad spinners, platters and jell-o molds into towers he calls Saplings and jewel toned plastic goblets with beads he calls Oyster Lilies.

Judy Riola’s cheerfully dystopian and wildly colorful abstractly figurative mixed media paintings look like jazz, funk and reggae sounds.

In this dark season, Room presents a hallucinatory look at  work being made in response to what we see around us now now.

“Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly.

“A girl with kaleidoscope eyes”
