Tell Tale Signs

December 9, 2011 - January 21, 2012
Opening receptionFriday, December 9, 5 - 8 p.m.

It is with great pleasure that Corbett vs. Dempsey presents Tell Tale Signs, an exhibition of new paintings by Art Green.

A member of the original Hairy Who exhibition group, which showed at the Hyde Park Art Center (1966-1968) and introduced the Chicago Imagist notion to the world, Green has been mining a shaft of potent images for the last 45 years. He brings together a puzzle master's love of pattern, illusion, code and system, a Pop artist's interest in vibrant commercial and vernacular source images, and a fastidious finish fetish. Tell Tale Signs, Green’s first solo show in Chicago in many years, features several elaborately shaped canvases including "Hang Time," a giant dollar sign-shaped painting inspired by the global economic downturn, and various approaches to perspectival confusion. The brilliantly colored, dizzyingly detailed images take great concentration to parse, yielding layers of interlocking imagery, all composed with a wry sense of humor, rich in visual puns and subtle allusions. The exhibition is accompanied by a 28-page catalog featuring an interview with Green and reproductions of all the work, plus images of source material and sketches.


In the East Wing:

SUSANNE DOREMUS
New Drawings

In the East Wing, C vs. D presents an exhibition of new work by Susanne Doremus. Doremus has been well-known since the late 1970s for her sensitive, expressive paintings and drawings, which often tease the border between abstraction and figuration. In this exhibition, she will present three exeptionally beautiful new drawings, with intricate, whipping line work and soft, wash-like areas of color.
