Kristen Van Deventer: Les Mis

@ Regards

2216 W Chicago Ave, Chicago, IL 60622

Opening Saturday, May 19th, from 4PM - 7PM

On view through Saturday, June 30th

The room has a particular sound and scent I can’t yet place. But it has absorbed everything. All the big ones – memory, metaphor, nostalgia, empathy – into a dusky yellow.

I see it now as a slipping in. Slipping into a melody or a somebody, into a joke or a night or a flower. When color slips in, I see it laying on the surface of a thread, pooling in the center, digging deep there, seeping through, while the edges remain barely touched, young.

A color may appear differently on a plate than on a bowl. Orange may look darker on a dress than on a sheet. Become a lighter hue or another name altogether.

Combinations of forms – light hitting a wet street, deciduous trees littering hills, triangular sails pointing away from jetties – even these abstractions hold tight. But not until you call it by its name, leave and return, does home do this.
