Kass Copeland - New Collages - Opening June 6th


Kass Copeland - New Collages
AdventureLand Works On Paper
 
Reception Friday, June 6, 7-10pm


“I find the puzzling together of previously unrelated objects and images very satisfying. Like joining words together to form a poem, my pieces reveal themselves to me as I form new associations with elements that already have separate histories. Humor is an important component in my work because it provides a universal means of communication.
In my most recent series I’ve created large scale collages on the surfaces of discarded hollow core doors found near construction dumpsters in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. I also incorporate recycled digital trash by using phrases and names from junk email to inspire concepts for my pieces. 

My work is rooted in a narrative foundation because words have always evoked images for me. I often use favorite childhood stories, rhymes or songs as resources. By focusing on these texts, I hope to provide an alternative view of the past by placing these themes into contemporary, social, and sometimes political, context.”   - Kass Copeland 2014

Victoria Fuller - Nature² @ Packer Schopf Gallery - June 6 - July 12

Sculptor and Environmentalist Victoria Fuller 
Examines the natural world with Nature² 
at Packer Schopf Gallery, Chicago


Victoria Fuller’s sculpture explores nature from all angles – underground, above ground, outer space and inner space. In an exhibition at Packer Schopf Gallery, Fuller offers a multilayer investigation of environmental systems. Aptly titled Nature², Fuller’s sculptures alternately depict organic and manmade structures, illustrating both nature’s abundance and the dire consequences of human interference. Figurative representations of untouched flora and fauna juxtapose ecological carelessness and exploitation. For example, the hibernating chipmunks of Deep Down starkly contrast Factory Farm’s caged chickens. Viewed as a collection, Fuller’s artwork simultaneously examines nature’s inherent harmony and the human tendency to control it. 

Nature² marks a departure in Fuller’s artwork. While prior sculpture re-appropriated common, manufactured objects to subtly reveal environmental motifs, the Nature² collection interprets the natural world via more literal construction. Direct depictions of organic elements - whether among earth and grass or human-implemented industrial piping – allow Fuller to investigate systems impacted by man’s activity in a widely-understandable manner. Though distinct, Fuller’s newer sculpture remains interconnected with her found object-based artwork. Each body of work informs the other, fully illuminating the universal experience of life on earth.

Reception: Friday, June 6, 5:00-8:00 PM
