There were 10 consecutive days in Paris during a semester abroad where I made a picnic lunch and ate it in the plaza of The Centre Pompidou: a baguette, a chunk of cheese, a tomato, and a carton of blood-orange juice. Each day I watched a man assemble and play a drum kit in the plaza. In place of the cymbal he had strung up a sock filled with sand. Every time the song called for him to play the cy...   [more]

We need something real, essential, that’s in front of our faces, and we need to believe deeply in it. We don't need hypotheticals, we don't need speculation, we want to touch things, feel them, trust them. We need to wade into art and surround ourselves with it. We’ve become apathetic and callous. We spent the whole day on our laptops. Now we’re noticing details; looking for short flee...   [more]

Sabina Ott creates a site-specific installation of new works that creates a transformative psychic journey, turning three enormously windowed spaces overlooking Millennium Park into a mysterious and mystical hybrid environment.

This recent body of textile and sculptures continues Connet’s twenty year fascination with the process of the dye-resist technique of mokume shibori. Connet's new wall pieces approach a level cartographic exploration, reassembling the compositions into abrupt transitions between pattern and deep indigo fields. Connet's sculptures are motivated by the three-dimensional potential of the tensi...   [more]

With a twist towards the absurd and theatrical, Patricia isolates characters and spaces to suggest drama while encouraging ambiguity. She creates images in sculpture and paintings with situations of seeming opposition and paradoxes: silence and movement, private and public language, intimacy and banality, creating tension and poetic construction. She is intrigued with the poetics hidden in the munda...   [more]
