DESCRIPTION

“Angelicies: A Look At the Modern Day Angel,” is a group exhibit featuring 20 Chicago based artists.  When one hears the term “angel”, chances are that person already has a pre-conceived notion of what an angel looks like, what it embodies, and immediately ascribes a meaning.  Jackson Junge Gallery challenged Chicago artists to bring forth the image of the modern day angel in a group exhibit titled “Angelicies”.  Throughout time, artists have consistently searched for different ways to evaluate what they think an angel might truly look like.  The standard winged being that we have come to know is not necessarily what the artistic interpretation is going to yield.

Angelic figures inhabit the worlds of more than just the religious.  In fact, it was recently found that one in five people, who are not religious, believe that they have a guardian angel!  The meanings of angels and what they are to different people offer many different interpretations and ideas or imaginings.  Art has been a great proponent of attempting to illuminate what the mind has difficulty in expressing. “Angelicies” attempts to embrace all forms of expression of the idea of angelic beings or qualities. 

“The holidays always seem to evoke music and imagery that fill Chicago with the presence of angels,” said Chris Jackson, director and co-owner of the Jackson Junge Gallery.  “Seeing more imagery of angels at this time of year gets people thinking about their existence more readily.  It seems like a great time to bring the idea to the forefront of the Chicago area.”

The artists provided works of many different media and variations on the theme of angels.  From the more traditional aspects of angels to an urban interpretation, “Angelicies” provides the audience with a platform for viewing the analysis of each artist’s perspective on angels.
