> DESCRIPTION

It is with great pleasure that Corbett vs. Dempsey presents Tell Tale Signs, an exhibition of new paintings by Art Green.

A member of the original Hairy Who exhibition group, which showed at the Hyde Park Art Center (1966- 1968) and introduced the Chicago Imagist notion to the world, Green has been mining a shaft of potent images for the last 45 years. He brings together a puzzle master's love of pattern, illusion, code and system, a Pop artist's interest in vibrant commercial and vernacular source images, and a festidious nish fetish. This new group of paintings, which represents Green’s rst solo show in Chicago in many years, features several elaborately shaped canvases, including "Hang Time," a giant dollar sign-shaped painting inspired by the global economic downturn, and various approaches to perspectival confusion. The brilliantly colored, dizzyingly detailed images take great concentration to parse, yielding layers of interlocking imagery, all composed with a wry sense of humor, rich in visual puns and subtle allusions. The exhibition is accompanied by a 28-page catalog featuring an interview with Green and reproductions of all the work, plus images of source material and sketches.
