ZACK WIRSUM

A STRANGER STILL…

Solo Exhibition

EXHIBITION OPENING: FRIDAY, MAY 5, 2017 5:30-7:30 PM

Jean Albano Gallery presents their third solo exhibition of Chicago based painter Zack Wirsum entitled A Stranger Still… opening on Friday, May 5, 2017 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. The exhibition continues through June 30, 2017 and is free and open to the public Tuesdays through Fridays from 10:30am to 5:30pm and Saturdays from 11am to 5pm and also by appointment.

Wirsum’s latest body of work attempts to refine the visual noise that has accumulated in his past painting practice. The seemingly obsessive linear layering and intense attention to detail along with vivid coloring remains, but restful passages of negative space are being incorporated to establish a compositional hierarchy and moments of ease. These latest paintings still emphasize a high variety of texture and breadth of spectrum with the continued playful push and pull of abstraction and figure, but as the practice advances the need for stillness pushes the process into new directions of exploration in A Stranger Still
