Marischa Slusarski, ‘Untested Torture Benevolent Red’, 2016, Robert Berman Gallery

These pieces were conceived during a period in which I was eager to find an additional road compatible with my increasingly abstract sensibility. I inadvertently found the inspiration literally behind the wheel at the drive through car wash. As I sought out various “exterior only” locations throughout Los Angeles, I began to experiment with digital effects, gleefully augmenting my raw, through-the-windshield images until they became something else, skewing technique, place and #nofilter politeness.

As our methods of making art have transformed since the advent of new digital media, the way we access and process art has also changed. “All Wet,” attempts to give unpretentious and accessible clues about how to see the ordinary in new ways. Stay curious: If you’re lucky, the unremarkably mundane might morph into something surprising.
