Eyeporium Gallery Exhibition Opening

“Lush Life” by Joey Wozniak

Opening Night is Friday, February 5, 2010

Eyeporium Gallery presents Joey Wozniak’s sumptuous paintings that combine the cool allure of abstraction with figurative images created with hand-cut stencils.  Using lavishly applied oil paints, he pulls, scrapes and layers saturated color fields, then meticulously populates the paintings with figures of forgotten gods, misty cities and fantastic creatures.  His vocabulary is such that he speaks to both past history and the present moment in these very lush works.


Opening Reception (public invited) - Friday, February 5, 2010 from 7pm to 10pm

Exhibition - Through Saturday, February 27, 2010.

Joey attended the School of the Art Institute in the ‘70’s where he was strongly influenced by his instructor, Ray Yoshida, a contributor to a style known as Chicago Imagism.  For the last 15 years Joey’s preferred medium has been oil painting.  He exhibits primarily in the Midwest as a solo artist as well as part of a Chicago group known as the Crazy 8 – self-proclaimed creators of wild art.


Annette Sollars, creator of Chicago's fine eyewear icon, Eye Want, also launched Eyeporium, a fine art gallery in Wicker Park. Representing exceptional artists of regional and national prominence, Eyeporium Gallery features contemporary creators of paint, print, photographic and sculptural works from the realistic to the surreal to the abstract. With the location of Eyeporium inside Eye Want, Annette has created a single destination for you to procure fine eyewear and fine art “for your face and your space”.
