In concurrence with Art Walk Open House Saturday, October 3rd, 12- 7 PM

Opening October 3, 2009 from 7-10 PM a showing of print work that investigates the theme ‘Strangers.’ Outsiders, unknowns and passers through are explored in brand new artwork created by Sanya Glisic and Mischa Kegan. The event will be held at Spudnik Press (1821 W Hubbard St. Suite 308 Chicago, IL 60622) where all the work was created.

Mischa Kegan works with images of urban spaces. He presents his current surroundings as flat, graphic and colorful settings. Doing this references places, spaces and times ever changing and simultaneously always constant. As of late, he has been working solely with monoprinting processes and finds that manipulating ink on a Plexiglas plate allows for an infinite amount of textures and color combinations to portray his view of the city.

Sanya Glisic’s screen prints, like her drawings and illustrations, have the sensibility of a folktale turned inside out, of a fantastic place where innocence and darkness are the dominant forces, but where these dualities lose their clarity, and contradiction is the only constant. Her figures are still, unnerving, caught in the moments between actions, revealing an uncertain hesitation that underlies every aspect of the world we live in now.

Show runs October 3rd to October 30, 2009.
