Katherine Desjardins  artist painting drawing installation

Since arriving in Chicago in 2007, Desjardins has trained her eye on the city's industrial/agricultural complex as a nexus of transitivity rich with possibility as both metaphor for the provisionality of painting (and its relation to commerce)---as well as an experience of the urban sublime.

This recent work is experiential: about transition from one place to another, cultural juxtaposition, and the collision between raw and refined, familiar and unknowable material.
