July 27 - August 17, 2013
In the West Wing, Corbett vs. Dempsey presents Like It Is: Paris Portraits , new paintings by Hedwig Eberle. An exceptional young painter based in Germany and France, she is currently the recipient of the Cité international des arts Award in Paris. Eberle holds a degree from the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich, and is a 2001 graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she received a Fulbright scholarship. Her work relates to some of Chicago’s existential figurative painters of the 1950s, but with a distinctively contemporary visage. Daringly painted with subtle and counter-intuitive color strategies, Eberle’s small heads are at once brutal and beautiful.
An opening reception will be held at Corbett vs. Dempsey on Saturday, July 27 th , from 5:00 – 8:00pm.
