“Mammas, Boys,” mixed media

Presenting the work of two original mother-son painters, this body of work is not only joined by family bonds, but also by a love for image. The works included communicate in similar ways through an active use of color, pattern and form. Although differences arise the focus is always on the dominance of the image, which has been a strong suit of Chicago art for decades.
