Mike Andrews: Not Your Grandma’s Future Juice Bar
September 14, 2013–January 5, 2014
Chicago Cultural Center, Michigan Avenue Galleries, 1st Floor South
Fueled by dynamic relationships between bright and dull colors, hard and soft materials, and range of scale, this series of sculptures and tapestries pointedly occupies the gallery space demanding the viewer’s attention. Andrews uses the format of the tapestry because he feels it is an ideal information delivery system that simultaneously functions as object and image. This exhibition is informed by the grandeur of historical tapestries, non-representational abstract painting, and the delirium of the home crafter.
