DESCRIPTION

Hinge Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of two solo exhibitions from 6 – 9 pm on May 12, 2012 at 1955 West Chicago Avenue featuring new paintings by David Leggett and new drawings by Kristina Paabus.

David Leggett will exhibit new paintings focused on afro futurism and afro pop.  Leggett’s work references cultural and personal relationships and attempts to tackle the many contradictions involved in the human experience.  Leggett syas, “The artwork I make is about the experience of being present in the world. I want us all to be more aware of one another and the lives that we lead.”  David Leggett received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2007 and his BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2003.
