Iconic superheroes are broken into fragments and placed within a new chaotic world of type, color, and pattern as they wage battle. This battle for supremacy is mimicked throughout Gossel's process as each layer of spray paint, silkscreen ink, and collage fight one another to be seen on the heavily layered surfaces. Bold and brightly colored versions of once invincible superheroes succumb to the effects of time and begin to fade away, resembling decayed billboards of an idyllic past gone by. The end result is a dynamic exhibition that begs the question of what lies beneath the surface.<br /> <br /> Greg Gossel - Superficial!<br /> October 4 - November 1, 2014<br /> Opening reception with the artist Saturday, October 4th, 6-10PM</p> Thu, 18 Sep 2014 19:14:43 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/chi/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/chi/Events/list Elijah Burgher, Robert Burnier, Fernando Pareja, Leidy Chavez, Cheryl Pope, Michael Rakowitz, Jessica Stockholder, Saya Woolfalk, Ken Gonzales-Day - EXPO CHICAGO - September 18th - September 21st Tue, 16 Sep 2014 23:34:02 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/chi/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/chi/Events/list
