In collaboration with Chicago Artists Month, Gallerique is pleased to exhibit the work of Diana P. Gabriel and Ben Holiday in Studioscapes.
Through the use of bright colors, intricate designs and linear marks, the two artists mimic the still, vertical luminosity of Chicago architecture. Where Holiday’s paintings feature detailed skylines and architectural elements, Gabriel’s site-specific installations make physical the linear, complex facades found within Holiday’s canvases. Through installations that react, attach and shape themselves specifically to the walls they are created within, Gabriel outlines and enhances each space’s interior. Mimicking expansive city grids and intricate blueprints, her installations explore and expose the enticing patterns and compositions found in Holiday’s paintings.
