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."
