    Curated by Lorraine Heitzman, the three artists in Re· iterate rely on systems of
    repetition in both measured and effusive ways. Raghubir Kintisch, Monica Wyatt and
    Heitzman explore mystical, natural and psychological worlds through reiteration, and
    each finds meaning in the process. The impulse to reiterate is fundamental. Repetition
    creates rhythms, lending emphasis to amplify and clarify; it is a way of making sense of
    something, just as it is a tool for learning. In Reiterate, Heitzman, Kintisch and Wyatt
    show us that contrary to the common idiom, more is sometimes more.
     
     
    Deceptive DécolletageRaghubir Kitisch
     
    Raghubir Kintisch paints vivid images on paper that can be construed as an alphabet for a spiritual language drawn from her Kundalini practice. Her process involves reimaging and reconfiguring her paintings as her understanding has evolved through introspection and reinvention. Some of her paintings honor gurus and deities, while others approach divination and mysticism in more abstracted ways, in the manner of mandalas and other forms of spiritual art. Each painting is self-sufficient, but the installation emphasizes her repeated use of religious elements, adding to an intensified, immersive holistic experience.
     
     
    Stagecraft, L. Heitzman 
     
    Lorraine Heitzman uses found materials for inspiration in her mixed media paintings and
    assemblages on wood panels. Vintage ephemera, decorative papers and other
    materials are set against painted grounds and organized into irregular grids in which
    narratives seep into abstract landscapes. She intuitively arranges random materials and
    images within a matrix that divides as well as unifies the disparate elements. This
    armature supports and emphasizes the transformation of materials as new associations
    arise and coalesce, retrieving memories and moods.
     
     
    Years Come To My Eyes #2, M. Wyatt
     
    Monica Wyatt finds beauty in the cast-off detritus of manufacturing. With an eye towards the idiosyncratic, she repurposes zip-ties and bobbins into elegant hanging sculptures that belie the humble origins of her materials. Her woven sculptures assume organic forms like hanging bird nests or cell structures that are devoid of color, but ooze with texture. In Wyatt's hands, the industrial by-products and incidental hardware are given a new life. Her imaginative use of materials is both convincing and fantastical, balancing between the wonder of natural structures and inventive facsimiles.
