> DESCRIPTION

Bert Green Fine Art is pleased to present two solo shows by artists working in graphite on paper — similar media but with greatly dissimilar results.

Raeleen Kao lives and works in Chicago, IL and is a printmaker at White Wings Press. These drawings draw on her early memories of a critical heart surgery at age three. She uses bodily imagery: hair, skin and scars to depict an interrleationships of mortality, bodily frailty, vanity and identity as signifiers for the interplay between life and death. Vanity is a futile foil against deterioration, the frailty of the body and physical realities as a truth more potent than any other. As a result, these drawings exhibit a quiet and profound aesthetic sophistication. This is Kao’s first solo show with the gallery.
