 Linda Warren Gallery is proud to present the first solo exhibition of Mariano Chavez's career - "May Flowers".  Named most recently as one of Chicago's 2008 "Break Out Artists" by New City's critic Jason Foumberg, Chavez is nothing short of a strong image maker and one who believes that in our current age of mass media bombardment, where one can switch or click from horror to despair to delight in a nanosecond, one must, to grab the viewers attention and get a message across, proffer similar goods. Chavez offers the public his ideas in a form they seem to desire - entertainment -- subversively utilizing a style that he in fact actually disdains, cartooning, to posit questions about the certainty of what art should be, present symbols for what he sees are eternal constants of the human condition while mining both a personal quest and universal need to confront beauty
