Opening Reception December 6, 2013, 6 to 9
Recently returned from an artist residency in Slovenia, Shanna Maurizi presents new work that explores areas where description attempts to give shape to unknown phenomena.  Working with the tension between the opposing poles of scientific understanding and mystification, the pieces originate in film photography and are realized as altered C-prints, collages, and screenprints.

Description of Changing Conditions
Lendava, Slovenia
In October 2013 I was an artist-in-residence at D'Clinic Studios in Lendava, Slovenia.  This was a productive and memorable residency, which included going underground with an infra-red camera in the Karst cave underworld of southeast Slovenia.  My studio work culminated in an exhibition in the main gallery on October 31, Halloween. 

Screening of "Late Night with Carl Sagan" at Other Cinema
Saturday November 2nd, 2013
At Craig Baldwin's San Francisco experimental film series, my homage to Mr. Sagan will follow a homage to "2001", and will share the bill with the super brilliant SodaJerk twosome, Australian sisters who do dual side-by-side laptop-controlled-in-real-time projections, in this case a seance raising the spirits of the cinematic dead.

Open Sundays, 1-6pm

June 13, 2011 — Famous Accountants is delighted to present Unidentified, an exhibition of new work by Shanna Maurizi. This is her first solo show in New York.

Unidentified is a rumination on biology, science fiction and genetics. Aggressively cutting, scraping, or obscuring the surface of her photographs, Maurizi attempts to rupture images of natural history museums, research labs, and curiousity cabinets. Neon colors leak through incisions and crust around the edges of floating shapes, a reference to the fluorescent dyes used to mark DNA in transgenic animals. Research labs full of vaguely threatening machinery erupt in multicolored lights or murky insect swarms. The photographs themselves, neutral but sharply observed, are an attempt to index the slippage between constructed knowledge and its subject, which never seems to hold still.
