Don't Laugh and Don't Say Oh My Gosh: School 33 (2014)
"Alice Gadzinski used to be a dancer, which has thus evolved into a fascination and borderline obsession with performance aesthetics. She presents the human experience, both good and bad, and the idea of performing in a domestic sense from a delightfully sarcastic stance. Paraphernalia oozing nostalgia, collected at garage sales and thrift stores is re-contextualized to present an honest kind of adolescence that is, of course, as warped as the next person's. Gadzinski's elaborate; shrine-esque sculpture juxtapose beauty with artificiality, social standards with natural urges, domestic safety with vulnerability, using the shiny plastic language of kitsch and camp. Easch piece sucks the viewer in and demands them to seek out every hilarious, profane detail before moving onto the next. They shine a tongue-in-cheek and neurotic light on out oftentimes-laughable existence.

Karma Pop Collaboration (2016)
This project took about a year to come together. Krystal Mack of creator of Karma Pop reached out to me after seeing a piece of mine in the Rinehart Fall show at MICA. She wanted to do a collaboration, but wasn't sure of an outlet or how. A year later- after connecting with B-More Art- the occasion arose! Krystal was asked to produce ice pops the Launch Party for Issue II of BmoreArt Journal of Art+ Ideas at Area 405. Krystal gave me full reign on how to decorate her dessert tricycle and she designed a flavored pop to go with my aesthetic. I wanted the trike to still be mobile, so it could be ridden from my studio to her gallery for the easiest possible transport. My inspiration was the word "pop" adding faux and real bubbles to the bike along with faux ice pops and flowers made out of bubble wrap. The flavor pop she created with blue raspberry lemonade covered in pop rocks! It was a smashing success!
