EVANSTON MADE GROUP SHOW

BRIAN MADONNA

June 8 - 30, 2019

Through highly textural oil paintings and conceptual assemblages, Brian Madonna studies how the formation of worldview affects societies holistically. Through re-contextualization of various forms of media, his viewer is forced to question ideological and cultural connections. Frequently influenced by artists like Adrian Ghenie, Francis Bacon, and Marcel Broodthaers, Brian’s work has broad, but uncompromising views of American contemporary life.  

DESMOND BEACH & NATASHA GILES

July 6 – 28, 2019

Desmond Beach’s work explores the internal dialogue and duality in the relationship that people have with one another, as well as creating work that comments on the social stereotypes surrounding African-American men.

Natasha Giles paints images found on social media that explore the illusion of time and the unspoken communication of body language; the personality and character that is exuded in a captured moment.
