EBERSMOORE is pleased to announce its upcoming solo exhibition entitled “Ultimate Boon” with Chicago based artist Kate Ruggeri. The exhibition opens Friday, January 11, 2013 and runs through February 8.
The work, featuring new sculpture and works on paper, is a result of a fascination with Joseph Campbell’s monomyth, or “Hero’s Journey”, in which the hero travels through a stages of trials to make the return from adventure. The works stem from points within the cycle, with an emphasis on points of the return (“Ultimate Boon”). The show’s main sculpture, “Hero” is seven foot conglomerate painting.
As a multi-disciplinary artist, Ruggeri’s studio practice is strongly rooted in the laborious and experimental. This is Ruggeri’s first series since losing her old studio to fire.
