“Mr. Lombardi has glued his materials, most often yellowed newspaper articles and advertisements, to sheets of plexiglass, and the way light strikes his surfaces often means that printing on both the front and the back of the article can be read"
"That this often causes a confusion and a babel of language is part of Mr. Lombardi's point. The 20th century is full of heady contradictions and a compounding of high and low elements. Mr. Lombardi is deliberately alluding to another uniquely 20th century practice, the Surrealist game of ''exquisite corpse,'' in which words and images combine by chance in often startling ways."
