Creating art is often a long and lonely road (though not unpleasantly so). While artists must develop their own voice and vision – creation doesn’t happen in a vacuum. I’m interested an establishing a monthly crit night (or day) at the gallery and seeking feedback from fellow artists.
Still Open, an exhibition of works on paper by Emily Rapport, continues a theme of interest for the artist; neighborhood scenes and portraits of Chicago’s changing urban landscape. Her typically vibrant oil painting palette is restricted to moody earth tones of black, grey, brown and sepia inks. These small scale works on paper have a documentarians eye for detail but seem to find elasticity in the moment rather than rigid perfection. On view through August 14, 2021.
Each artist has created a video showing their studio practice, thinking process, materials and techniques. Captions coming soon!
… How did those paintings, of all possible paintings, earn the prestige of hanging in an apartment with high-end decor and a stunning view of Lake Michigan in the original Mies Van Der Rohe residential highrise? It felt reasonable to assume that the owner had not only spent some serious coin on their art collection but had curated their collection with the help of a gallery owner, and possibly an art consultant or interior designer.
