Did You See Heaven: SPECTRA, Peregrine Program, Chicago, IL

Li Trincere, Peregrine Program

In a conversation with the artist Mary Heilmann at the Art Institute's Modern Wing a while back, she asked "Did you see Heaven?" in reference to her brushy green painting (titled Heaven) then on exhibit. I remember so well the way she mischievously smiled that question. With big eyes. It still makes me smile.

VIEWLIST: Ted Stamm in Context, Conceived by Bryan Granger

Frank Stella, Black Adder, 1967, Color lithograph, 16 x 28 inches, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, California

Our fifth VIEWLIST exhibition is conceived by MINUS SPACE assistant Bryan Granger.

With his work, Ted Stamm draws as much from a Minimalist, hard-edge legacy as it does from the randomness and arbitrariness of his own life.  Seeing as Stamm sought to “eliminate any physical boundary in time or space” between his life and his work, we must look at the two as inseparable.  His sleek manipulations of baseball diamonds and high-speed trains offer a glimpse into some of his passions, and his Wooster paintings preserve specific spatial memories from his time in New York.

VIEWLIST: Bulletin Board: Inspiration Information, Conceived by Karen Schifano

Douglas Melini

Our third VIEWLIST exhibition is conceived by New York painter Karen Schifano.

The word “inspire” (originally meaning “to infuse with breath”) is a verb, but can also transform itself into a noun or adjective. It’s very active, and yet also implies being receptive, even demands openness, a readiness to receive, and a sharpening of perception and awareness. From one thing, there is a direct connection to another thing, a kind of touch that is nurturing, rich and full of promise. Potential becomes realization; we wake up rejuvenated, re-energized, and ready for action.
