Posted 10/27/15

By: Amy Haddad A group show at LVL3 in Chicago brings together three artists that explore germination in multiple ways. Heidi Norton. “The Plight (feeding Systems).” Image courtesy of LVL3. Visitors attending the “Germination” exhibition at LVL3, a gallery in Chicago, should expect to be surprised by the connections the show offers. The title brings to mind seeds growing into plants.

Posted 9/5/15

By: Amy Haddad A five-piece art exhibition evokes how office life, and our world, is changing. Eric Wesley, “DPS #9 (Pomegranate).” The movie “Office Space” satirizes white collar office jobs during the 1990s, mocking the hierarchical structure, rows of cubicles and endless amount of paperwork found in office life. Although movies and television shows have parodied office life for years, conventions appear to be changing, as the virtual and physical worlds continue to collid... [more]

by
Edgar Degas at The Art Institute of Chicago July 1st, 2015 - February 6th
Posted 8/28/15

By: Amy Haddad Edgar Degas, “Little Dancer Aged Fourteen.” Many consider Edgar Degas an Impressionist artist—a painter of modern life. That he was, though different than some of his contemporaries. He called himself a “Realist.” Rather than painting plein air landscapes, using color, light and shade to capture fleeting moments, as Monet and other Impressionists famously did, Degas captured everyday movements in the theater, at the ballet or the cafés he frequente...

Posted 8/21/15

By: Amy Haddad Kris Martin, “T.Y.F.F.S.H.” The “S, M, L, XL” exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) in Chicago is a small but compelling show. The exhibition opens explaining how some sculptors in the 1960s moved art from the pedestal into the viewer’s space. This theme has continued over the past five decades in various sizes, as the exhibition’s title suggests. As visitors experience the physical and mental attributes of space, they may begin to...

By: Amy Haddad Michael and Yhelena Hall’s thought-provoking installation at The Mission in Chicago does more than draw attention to the environment. This show reveals practical solutions to contemporary problems. Partial exhibition shot of “Wilderness and Household.” Creating artwork that generates awareness to environmental issues is nothing new. Agnes Denes famously created “Wheatfield” in 1982. Two acres of wheat were planted and harvested in a Manhattan l... [more]

By S. Nicole Lane Ta Prohm Trees, Gallery 2, Nancy Lu Rosenheim “I sat there, my heart beating fast, shaken by what had happened. The destruction of life and the boundless mystery of the content of softness.” -Magdalena Abakanowicz, Statements (1979-94) Knotted hair, tornadoes, log cabins, and pig sties, are (to name a few) the nouns which Nancy Lu Rosenheim applies to her work—trees of heaven, band aids, and sticks are stated as materials and the list goes on.

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]

Posted 5/27/12

On Thursday 26 April, I attended the opening reception of Forms & Fragments at the InterContinental Chicago O'Hare Hotel in Rosemont, Illinois. My expectations of classic "Motel Room Art" and a tacky "Starving Artist Sale" quickly dissipated upon entering The Art Museo section of the lobby. This group show featuring 3-D wall constructions is subtly integrated with artwork from the InterContinental's permanent collection which includes Modern masters such as Rauschenberg. The labyrinth of first flo... [more]
