Made in Chicago and the Midwest - Three Contemporary Abstract Expressionists

Gotham News, 2015, 60" X 40", ink transfer on metallic paper w/plexiglass, mounted on anodized aluminum
Friday, October 9, 2015 to Friday, November 27, 2015

Keiko Nemeth, Richard Schemm and Philip Livingston unite to explore the decoding constructs of nature's geometry and architecture. This exhibition is a multi-pointed awareness of the concept of form following function - asking what is the artist's function in society: decoding surroundings and civilizations which influence us (local storytelling and spirit life buried in our soil), understanding that the land with its minerals and resources become us, translate into us - what we are and where our DNA lineage originates. This collective exhibition taps into these structures - pyramids and buildings which change the structure of energy; visual imagery uniting universal constructs. By integrating local color and forms through gestural interpretations, these images attempt to deconstruct the stream of synthesis. Their canvases and surfaces translate a measured knowledge of ancient structures removing the archaic but bringing forth truth.
