Spudnik Press Cooperative presents new work by Chicago-based artist Jake Saunders. The exhibition, titled “I Will Love You Forever/Hans + Eva Rausing 4/1/12-7/10/12” is a body of work by Chicago artist, Jake Saunders. In this series of etchings, the artist employs events surrounding a three month period in the relationship between Eva and Hans Kristian Rausing. These works mine for aesthetic tropes and symbolism while occupying landscapes reminiscent of European Romantic Era artists such as Fuseli, Gericault and Goya. Amalgamating these events and symbols with those of his own life, Jake conveys the deeply personal through the veil the Rausings. Merging the idiosyncratic with that of the publicly known, Jake contemplates love, anxiety, loss and the malleability of narrative.
I Will Love You Forever/Hans + Eva Rausing 4/1/12-7/10/12 will kick-off with a Gallery Talk with Jake Saunders at 6:00 p.m. on March 3, followed by the Opening Reception.
I Will Love You Forever/Hans + Eva Rausing 4/1/2012-7/10/12 is the second of three Residency Exhibitions, a series of solo exhibitions that feature the 2016 Spudnik Press Resident Artists and the new work they each produced through the Spudnik Press Residency Program.
