DESCRIPTION

To round out this show of true Chicago artists, the emerging portrait painter Don Di Sante has his first show with the gallery. An old school soul, Di Sante's visages are caught in a pensive and decisive moment.

Di Sante has always felt misplaced in time, so it is not surprising he chooses to work within the age old tradition of portrait painting. For him it is a link to the past and a welcome disconnect from the present. He finds much to explore and relishes infinite possibilities working within the confines of portraiture. His subjects are both collaborators and adversaries. The struggle is part of the end result.
