October 14 – November 12, 2011
Th!nkArt Salon is proud to present the work of two outstanding Chicago artists: Arica Hilton and Iwona Biedermann. These two formidable Chicago artistsâ€™ works dance between the worlds of the known and the unknown, perception versus reality and the idea that beauty can be found in our daily lives, whether it be a reflecting pool of water on the street or the magnificence of the sky above us.
The work of Hilton and Biedermann are evocative of similar ideas, yet differ in scope. Hiltonâ€™s paintings deal with a macroscopic view of the world: her soft forms gently represent and highlight the beauty in naturally occurring phenomena without replicating them. Alternatively, Biedermannâ€™s photographic experimentations in time and light focus on the microscopic aspects of the world, sharpening and narrowing the focus on textures and shadows.
â€œBetween the Lines of Beautyâ€ will run from Friday, October 14th through Saturday, November 12th 2011 at Th!nkArt Salon, 670 W. Hubbard St., First Floor, located in the West Loop gallery district in Chicago, IL. Th!nkArt is pleased to announce that the artists will be present at the opening reception.
Contrasting views of the micro- and the macro- examine the ways in which we see beauty in both the world at large as well within its particulars.
