Jeffrey Hirst: Parallel Structures

@ Addington Gallery

704 N Wells St, Chicago, IL 60654

Opening Friday, July 8th, from 5PM - 8PM

On view through Saturday, August 20th

Jeffrey Hirst is highly regarded and widely recognized practitioner and teacher in the technique of encaustic painting, which involves the use of molten beeswax to achieve its evocative translucent effects. Hirst’s current work is characterized by deeply constructed shaped and beveled panels, which serve as the support for luscious and seductive surfaces that play with light, color, structure and space. Hirst investigates relationships between man-made architecture and natural phenomenon; questions arise as to how these forces coexist in our environment. Hirst is especially interested in the dynamic in an urban context. The correlation between urban decay and natural beauty (both at the micro and macro level) influence the work. How we interpret beauty and questions about values are addressed.

Exhibition continues through August 30, 2022
