Goldfinch is pleased to present Untitled (How Does It Feel), a solo exhibition by Chicago artist Esau McGhee. The opening reception is Sunday, September 9 from 3-6pm and the exhibition is on view through Saturday, October 20, 2018.
Esau McGhee’s works on paper steadfastly refuse acts of classification by any single medium, genre, style, or process. Although his most recent pieces comprise painted marks on collaged screen prints and a variety of other found and re-used papers, McGhee does not consider them paintings. Or rather, he recommends we think of them as paintings to the same extent that they are also sculptures, and also graffiti, and also collages, and also photographs made by and through the artist’s own body, without the use of a camera.
