LESLIE BAUM at HEAVEN GALLERY

An essential part of our practice includes visiting artist studios, galleries, and museums. These experiences provide continual opportunities to foster connections with the art community around us. When engaging with artwork in person, we gain a deeper connection which informs our best recommendations to clients. 

We recently stopped by Heaven Gallery on Milwaukee Avenue to see Leslie Baum's exhibition of new paintings. The geometric shapes in her work reference forms from iconic artworks of the past, functioning like 'Easter eggs' to be discovered by the viewer. These connection points build a bridge from the history of art to the present; at 20 x 16 inches each they shine as gems of contemporary, local art.

ADAM SCOTT STUDIO

An essential part of our practice includes visiting artist studios, galleries, and museums. These experiences provide continual opportunities to foster connections with the art community around us. When engaging with artwork in person,  we gain a deeper connection which informs our best recommendations to clients. 

An illuminating studio visit with Chicago artist Adam Scott led to engaging conversation about his process, including his impressive series of sketches from Joshua Tree. After our visit, an opportunity arose to collaborate with Adam by including his paintings in a group exhibition at Metropolitan Capital Bank.

This painting by Anna Kunz was recently acquired by a client, whose collection focuses on contemporary art relating to Chicago. Artwork in this collection is characterized by bold colors that impact and refresh their environment, creating a dynamic work space for their employees. Kunz applies pigment through nets to build texture in her compositions, and her work explores the cognitive and perceptual experience of light and color.   

 

 

 

happenings

 

This private residence was profiled in Modern Luxury Interiors one year ago. We consulted with the owners on many of their artwork purchases, including the Neil Goodman sculpture pictured here. Their artwork collection was mindfully structured to reflect the harmonious relationship between the home and the trees surrounding it.

EXPO Chicago is the largest contemporary art fair in the Midwest. It provides a host of opportunities to connect with colleagues, discover new artists, and meet with galleries from around the world. We saw a couple of notable paintings by Xylor Jane at Parrasch Heijnen Gallery's booth. She applies meticulous dots of paint to compose examinations of numeric systems.

When engaging with artwork in person,  we gain a deeper connection which informs our best recommendations to clients. 

The Mission Projects in Chicago represents artists from the United States and Latin America. Their exhibitions include a wide range of contemporary artwork, often experimental in nature, which explores cultural and societal issues. Michelle Magot's work struck a chord with us, using powerful color blocking and unique source materials.
