Edgar Degas at The Art Institute of Chicago July 1st, 2015 - February 6th

Craig Norton at Carl Hammer Gallery February 15th, 2013 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Posted 2/19/13

This is Craig Norton’s first Solo show in Chicago and he has really impressed the audience with his Mixed Media three dimensional Wall Art. In Dropping Mom Off at the Old folks Home, Norton draws attention to the insecurities that come with old age. He also highlights the mentality of our society towards old people. We think of them as an outcast and neglect them. His works are mainly a combination of drawings and collages layered on top of wood cutouts. The work touch the Robert Rauschenberg’s i... [more]

Originally appeared in Newcity, 8/24/09.  Written by Jason Foumberg, Art Editor for Newcity.  Courtesy of Newcity and Jason Foumberg: Candace Hunter An artist working in collage can make one of two major statements: by selecting and cutting material from piles of old magazines, the collagist either despairingly critiques the ever-flowing fountain of consumer information, or else she is a cosmopolite, joining disparate faces and places into a communal frame. Candace Hunter is this se... [more]

02slfprtwdolls Powerful Work  
Davida Schulman at Koehneline Gallery December 18th, 2008 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Posted 12/18/08

Davida Schulman investigates herself as a large, middle-aged matron through paintings, watercolors, and prints. Her stark self-portraits, usually executed sans clothing, are antithetical to prevailing cultural perceptions about the ideal feminine image. Schulman accepts herself as she is. These works also introduce audiences to the artist's work environment of the studio and the domestic atmosphere of her home. [more]
