Art League Houston presents the exhibition, "Pressure Cookie," an installation of new works by Melinda Laszczynski in the Hallway Gallery. The exhibition consists primarily of large paintings and small sculptures. All of the paintings and the sculptures in the exhibition are abstract, made of dyed and cast paper pulp encrusted with paint, glitter, found objects, and other materials.

The surfaces read as confectionary archeological sites with layers of color and texture spilling into dense, tactile landscapes, some of which are multiples cast from a single painting. Embedded within these forms are fragments of cassette tape, documents, and notes that the artist’s grandmother shredded as she began to struggle with dementia. Through a process of soaking, blending, pouring, drying, folding, and layering, these materials are altered much like memory- rearranged, forgotten, recalled, and rearranged again.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until July 23.
