In his newest paintings, Robin Denevan continues his exploration of the great rivers of the world, while employing an ever-more experimental, subjective use of color. By engaging the viewer through both tactile and visual means, Denevan evokes an almost primordial emotional and universal human connection to the earth.
Chicago artist Sandra Dawson balances a sensitivity for beauty and appreciation for whimsy with an aggressive, gut-level approach to making paintings. These works are at once delicate and powerful, and they attest to the maturity of Dawson as a visual artist. With this body of work, Dawson takes new strides as a colorist and narrative painter.
The paintings of Chicago artist Joan Holleb occupy an unusual place between painting and sculpture, between process and image, between poetry and narrative. The three - dimensional qualities of these works set them apart from most paintings, generating the unexpected effect of slowing down our gaze and causing us to look carefully at the small events on the surface of the work.
