Damen Ave Nocturne, 48 x 60", oil on canvas

"Artist Emily Rapport paints scenes of Chicago’s North Side in this exploration of the city’s changing urban landscape. An opening reception will take place on Friday, April 28, 2017 at Firecat Projects, 2124 N Damen Ave, Chicago, IL from 7 - 10 PM. Free and open to the public."

Exterior Illumination, 30 x 24", oil on canvas
"The exhibition, titled “Subject to Change: Urban Landscape and the Architecture of Place,” is both a documentary archive of a neighborhood undergoing physical and demographic shifts, and a painterly narrative that finds moments of sublime beauty in construction site debris and frozen mud tracks. The depiction of mundane scenes of streets and houses, often with vibrant colors and an expressive application of paint, transform the act of looking into a visceral experience."

Raising the Roof, 24 x 36", oil on canvas
