Show ran from 9/6/2000 to 9/30/2000
Intonations, an exhibition curated by Chicago art critic, John Brunetti
Works by Robert Bridges, Kevin Heppner, Jay Lefor, Scott Short, Shona Macdonald, Brian Willey, and Dann Witczak. These artists share a sensibility for producing beguiling visual chants through methodical and idiosyncratic processes of drawing, collage, painting and installation. “Intonations” refers to the way pitch is used as an element of meaning in language. For these artists, eliciting subtle and shifting inflections from seemingly identical forms, shapes, lines, textures, and colors, is the cornerstone for developing a compelling visual matrix of evolving perceptions from the deceptive uniformity of repetition.
