Lumens & Currents
Elizabeth Chiles’ photographs make the edges of our perception, its limits or margins, palpabale. Through the engagement of visibility and light, she transforms the everyday into something to be revered.
-Clare Ruud, Director of Curatorial Affairs, Art Institute of Chicago
The exhibition Lumens & Currents, Elizabeth Chiles and John Swanger at Grayduck Gallery, December 9, 2016 to January 15, 2017. This joint exhibition comes out of several years of dialogue between the artists regarding their work and inquires into life. The artists’ works interact and form conversations around questions of luminosity, surface, materials, color and practices of close attention.
