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 fl... [more]

Originally posted on ArtLetter.com BY PAUL KLEIN ON FEBRUARY 2, 2012 5:08 PM There's a lot of new talent emerging on the Chicago art scene, right now; talent that is art-historically knowledgeable and relevant.

In some of the pieces, two “figures” are involved in this dynamic, while in other sculptures single “figures” implicate the viewe... [more]

Review: Light and Air/Coalition Gallery in New City Robin Dluzen, detail from "Tower Support Grids (Chicago)," 2010, duct tape and silicone caulk on insulation board RECOMMENDED Ethereal can mean delicate, insubstantial, or otherworldly. In “Light and Air” at the Chicago Artists’ Coalition Gallery, each artist’s work reflects upon the different facets “ethereal.” Connie Wolfe’s abstract hand-cut ink-jet prints suspended just inches off the wall appear fragile and delicate like wisp...
