Sherie' Franssen

October 3 — November 2, 2019

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Undertow, an exhibition of recent works by artist Sherié Franssen. Some writers on painting and sculpture can trace their fascination with the subject to an encounter with a specific artwork. My epiphany came when I first saw Willem de Kooning's "Excavation" (1950) at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (loaned by the Art Institute of Chicago) in the late 1960s.… read more

Éric Antoine

Useful Lies
September 5 — 28, 2019

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Useful Lies, an exhibition of recent work by the French artist Éric Antoine. Antoine works in series, repeatedly photographing the same subjects while experimenting with light, reflection, and composition. As part of his near-obsessive approach, he typically first creates drawings that allow him to closely consider different nuances and possibilities before making the actual photograph. These quiet and at times somber—but always sublime—images are reservoirs of feeling and symbolism that are usually set in and around his home, located in the forest of northeastern France. He is uninterested, he explains, in finding and documenting the exotic, the strange, or the new. His art is instead an intimate and highly personal project, one that is impossible to separate from his life.… read more

Gonzalo Fuenmayor

May 2 — June 1, 2019

Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to announce Empire, an exhibition of new works by Gonzalo Fuenmayor, on view from May 2 to June 1, 2019. Born in Colombia but resident in the United States for most of his adult life, Fuenmayor has cultivated a practice that explores processes of cultural assimilation, colonialization, and exoticization. Empire draws on these past through-lines while also advancing beyond to think through new tensions and, in the process, reconsidering the visual language of his charcoal-on-paper medium.… read more

John DiPaolo

April 4 — 27, 2019

There is no formula, no method, just a compulsion to experiment.... The paintings tell you what they need. The interaction with painting is so primal. It’s the way we relate to the tactile world. —John DiPaolo… read more
