Firecat Projects
2124 North Damen Ave, Chicago
Hours Mon-Sat, 10 - 4
"Emily’s paintings offer a reflective view of the city. The external structures of houses are weatherworn and imbued with the character of their current/former owners. Reflections in water or windows are evocative of internal, possibly transformative, processes. Deconstructed and wrapped in Tyvek sheeting, the surrounding earth imprinted with tracks of heavy machinery, dirt and debris, we see an elemental struggle as the former structure is broken apart and built up again in paint. Seen together these ordinary neighborhood scenes coalesce to create an expressive vision of a distinctly American landscape."

Emily Rapport @ Firecat Projects- opens April 28

Subject to Change: Urban Landscape and the Architecture of Place
Artist Emily Rapport explores the “architecture of place” in her first solo exhibition of paintings at Firecat Projects.
 
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
Firecat Projects, 2124 N Damen Ave, Chicago, IL is open to the public Monday - Saturday, from 10am - 4pm, and by appointment. Visit their website at: https://www.firecatprojects.org

Emily Rapport attended the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York and is a graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. View more work at: http://www.emilyrapport.com
