ANGEL OTERO: The Dangerous Ability To Fascinate Other People
Kavi Gupta Gallery in Chicago is proud to present The Dangerous Ability To Fascinate Other People, the second gallery solo exhibition of paintings by New York based artist Angel Otero. While much of Otero’s works have been influenced by memories based in photographs and other family memorabilia combined with the gestures of 20th century painting, this latest exhibition highlights the artist’s unique process as a form of narrative in itself. Otero’s ‘deformation’ approach to painting his works, first across glass and then once dry, flaying the dried paint and reconstructing the composition anew across large canvasses, is representative of how the artist perceives the process of reconfiguring both personal and historical narratives.

Jacob C. Hammes & Lisa Rybovich-Crallé
Jacob C Hammes’ work is an exploration of the physical and psychological conditions relating to the experience of space and sensory perception, especially within contradictions of nature and artifice. Primarily using sculpture, digital media, and hypnosis, Hammes attempts to reveal the struggle to connect with our own animal identity and the ideologies used to understand it. Hammes’ new work for this exhibition features a wide …range of images and objects that signal his interest in transforming materials and creating pseudo-poetic dualities between ideas. The positioning of these objects is an important way of making these relationships happen.

SATURDAY || SEPTEMBER 10th, 2011

SUBURBAN COMMANDO, works by Jake Myers
Inspired by his own youthful indoctrination into a super-competitive landscape of sports, masculine idolatry and crass commercialism, Jake Myers recreates these strange American middle class experiences with photo, video, sculpture and edible installation. The works in his solo show “Suburban Commando” target heros or role models whose messages are lost for a variety of reasons. A grief-stricken Captain Planet…, a mutant hybrid of Taco Bell’s Che Chihuahua, and a coach who gets so pumped that he frightens the players with confusing mixed messages are just a few of the characters on kitschy display. Come and jump around in the astroturf this September 10th at Happy Collaborationists.

“AIR: tasteless, odorless, colorless”
Opening the Fall season at SideCar is “AIR: tasteless, odorless, colorless”, an exhibition of new work by Claire Ashley and Mark Booth. These two artists have been friends since 1993 and this show marks their first opportunity to exhibit together. The artists present their work as a conversation with one another and the gallery space itself. The element “AIR” provided a compelling lens through which to consider that work.
