ANDREW RAFACZ is pleased to announce Winter Romance, an exhibition of painting and sculpture in Gallery One curated by Andrew Rafacz and Nataliya Kotlova.
ANDREW RAFACZ begins 2018 with Winter Romance, a group exhibition of painting and sculpture by Mel Cook, Matthew Hilshorst, Alejandro Jimenez Flores, Ignacio Maria Manrique, Kailyn Perry, Alex Peyton-Levine, Dan Rizzo-Orr, Mindy Rose-Schwarz, Jenn Smith, Cody Tumblin, and Ryan M Pfeiffer + Rebecca Walz. The exhibition continues through Saturday, February 24, 2018.
Winter Romance focuses on notions of romance, or the Romantic, and what it means to make art in a dark time.
Amidst the gloom and cold of the winter months, how can one harness hope and affection within isolation? Exploring an array of responses to this question, the works in Winter Romance employ wit and mystery within a range of diverse material considerations. Using romance as a means of comfort, affection, and companionship these artists present the different levels of romanticism in art making. Winter Romance explores dreamy spaces, warm gestures, and intentionality as a trenchant rebuttal to the dreary winter in Chicago.
