SOLO SHOW: KEN HOGREFE, Walls of Possibility

A solo exhibition of work by Ken Hogrefe opens November 1, 2019, available to view in an online exclusive, curated show.

Ken Hogrefe November Solo Exhibition Walls of Possibility

Show Announcement

Walls of Possibility documents the four year exploration of an artist finding his personal language. Like events in his life and the larger world, Hogrefe’s final work can seem to fall apart even as it finds resolution. The painting process is intuitive and carefully studied at the same time, embracing both intention and the sublime “mistake”. Rooted firmly in large scale Abstraction and Figurative Abstraction, Hogrefe uses a variety of mediums and application methods for his paintings and works on paper.

Press Release--Mere Anarchy: Subconscious Patterns

Mere Anarchy: Subconscious Patterns

“All you can do is hope for a pattern to emerge, and sometimes it never does. Still, with a plan, you only get the best you can imagine. I'd always hoped for something better than that.”

― Chuck Palahniuk, Lullaby, (Novel)

In his first solo exhibition, Daniel Martin Sullivan unveils the last two years of prolific painting. Spurred on by the experience of invention and performing with immunity to outcome, Sullivan incorporates new approaches and appropriates familiar techniques arriving at a harmony with chaos.

Solo Exhibition--Switching Cadence: Recent Living Forms

Steven Tritt Solo Exhibition

The fifth solo show by Steven Tritt, this exhibit reveals a collection of work by a mid-career artist spanning two years of risky moves focused on abstracting living forms. Tritt has a long history of rendering imagery, prioritizing a loose approach to material and application. This recent body of work represents a transformation.

About the artist: Steven Tritt is a contemporary American artist born in Aurora, Illinois in 1964. He mixes materials which include many traditional drawing and painting medias as well as nontraditional ones. Collage has figured heavily throughout his career. Shortly after being accepted into the Contemporary Gallery Representation Program at The Art House Gallery in 2017, Tritt’s loosely rendered imagery took a turn towards abstraction. “I feel as if I’m striking a balance between recognizable imagery and abstraction in my work.” This is a direct result of working with Rebecca George and Tritt’s willingness to explore new materials. “While I use imagery as a starting point, there is no obligation on my part to save the integrity of the image, as I would have in the past, to complete a work.” For Tritt there isn’t a preconceived destination on any painting but a commitment to an honest and intuitive approach to art making. His influences include Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso, Max Beckmann. He holds a BFA (1986) and MFA (1990) from Northern Illinois University.
