> DESCRIPTION

Bert Green Fine Art is pleased to present our first solo show by Chicago-based artist Rafael E. Vera.

Rafael E. Vera has spent years slowly renovating his own home. The sculptures and works on paper in this show share a focus on the underlying reality of domestic building structural elements. The hidden forms which provide support and make possible the domicile are exposed and depicted as mundane and anonymous, yet ripe with abstract qualities. Concrete foundations and wood framing, unremarkable and utilitarian, freed from their role as building materials transform their quotidian existence and are newly interpreted.
