nine months ago, i was invited to show work at the gorgeous both sides gallery space in pilsen, chicago. it was a magical experience, full of meeting new people (one of which just so happens to be pouring me a cup of coffee right now), putting my art work out there, gathering feedback, and becoming exposed to one of the most vibrant art communities in this fair city.
tonight, nine months (to the day, and date – how about that?) later, i’ll be showing another series. you may remember when i drew a few bones back in the fall.. well, i’ve decided to expand on that idea and move a little deeper..ehem.. into the body, and context. the theme of this month’s show is ‘inner beauty’, so my take on that was to use suggestive phrases typically geared towards certain parts of the female and male bodies, and juxtapose them alongside illustrations of bones about which they’d be construed as positive attributes. i’ll have much more photos to post next week about the opening tonight (i might have a few pieces that need finishing this afternoon… ever the procrastinating artist), but here’s a sneak preview of two of the pieces i’ll be framing and hanging on the walls.
if you happen to find yourself in chicago tonight, stop by both sides gallery from 6-10pm, on the corner of 19th and halsted. or stop by anytime this month to take a gander at the show!
