Donna Rosenthal

@ Jean Albano Gallery

215 W Superior St, Chicago, IL 60654

Opening Friday, November 3rd, from 5:30PM - 7:30PM

On view through Wednesday, December 20th

New York-based artist Donna Rosenthal explores “the effects of traditional and societal influences on the lives of women.” Rosenthal adds, “I use text, repetition, and the cultural symbolism of clothing to expose the struggles between the internal and external self.” The artist employs traditional craft materials: vintage papers, books, magazines, linens, buttons, and dress patterns. These materials are deconstructed, then transformed and embellished with embroidery, beading, and gluing. As the final addition, text ties together content and materials, resulting in sculptures that are humorous yet provocative.
