The Road to Candyland: NICK BLACK

Opening Friday May 18 from 7pm-10pm
May 18- June 9, 2012


"Dear Friends
I've roamed the thrift stores, discount dollar stores, and alleys of Chicago and burbs in vain search of the fallen icons from the glorious golden age of consumption now come to a shattering end. These new sculptures will hold no bars in slamming together every cheep, cheesy, sexist, office male humor, misogynistic, homophobic, racist cliché in the book in a personal attempt to come to terms with a guilt ridden past, towards the neurotic reality of a failed future. As usual, I'll be laying on the satirical self-depreciating humor thick and heavy. Hope you can make it." -Nick Black
