Opening reception @ SideCar for: “Earth” – New work by: Darren Burge and l.h.sven johnson

May 7, 2011 @ 1:00 pm - June 4, 2011 @ 6:00 pm

SideCar is pleased to present:

“Earth” – New work by:
Darren Burge and l.h.sven johnson

These artists use both the landscape and object making as points of departure within their work. Darren starts with observing and recording the landscape and slowly obliterates it, working the image until what the viewer is looking at seems to oscillate between illusory landscape space and surface abstraction.

l.h.sven shreds plywood and then slowly builds up an object that liberally borrows from the historical language of painting and yet it is still unabashedly an object. These objects almost seem to struggle to be images. In the end, the viewer is left to sort out for themselves just what it is s/he is looking at.


Opening reception: Saturday, May 7th, 5 – 10 PM


May 7th – June 4th

Hours: Saturday, 1:00 PM – 6:00 PM

I have been a practicing artist for roughly 20+ years. The gallery will be open for one year on October 24th. I have worked for the Art Institute of Chicago for 20+ years in close contact with their collection and many of the artists that have come through the institution in those many years. I hope to continue to be surprised by the people I meet and get to work with and the work that those people produce ......
