Reinventing Ourselves from Another Point of View Self Portrait Exhibition


My painting, “Big Top,” is in the show – Reinventing Ourselves from Another Point of View Self Portrait Exhibition.  The show is at Art NXT Level Projects/33 Contemporary in Chicago.

Art NXT Level/33 Contemporary
Zhou B Art Center
1029 W. 35th Street
Chicago, IL 60609
Ph. 708-837-4534

The dates are from August 19 to September 10, 2016.

There is also an online magazine version of the show that can be seen at the following link.  I’m on Page 9.

This painting is from my current series of work- Fun House.  The concept is a mash-up of that classic amusement park attraction with more traditional  residential architecture.  The blurred lines lead to many spin offs about how we relate to the world.  This piece is a self-portrait depicting the sometimes overwhelming experience of sensory overload.
