Made in Chicago and the Midwest - Three Contemporary Abstract Expressionists
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.
