Bert Green Fine Art is pleased to present Jen Heaslip’s fourth solo show, and the first ever solo exhibition at our new Chicago gallery space.
Heaslip is a painter of the nude male form; her figures are alluring: mysterious, shadowy, grounded and earthy. Via a dark, almost monocolor palette, these men posit their existence as impassioned participants in the circle of life. The artist has provided no written statement explaining the work — it is meant to be experienced entirely as a visual experience with no mediation, no explanation, no guides. Accompanying the figurative works are a series of very small-scale skyscapes.
There will be an opening reception on Thursday, March 15 from 5-7 pm at the gallery. Gallery hours are Wednesday-Friday 11-6 and Saturday 12-5, or by appointment at other times. (Note revised gallery hours).
