Press Release

Opening: Friday, January 30, 6:00-8:00pm

It is with pleasure that Corbett vs. Dempsey announces Rebecca Shore, Barely Committed to Three Dimensions . This is the gallery’s third solo show by the artist.

In three distinct new bodies of work, Shore pushes her abstract paintings into new terrain, introducing a shallow sense of depth in many of them via a drop shadow.  One of the most vibrant and original post-Imagist artists to emerge in Chicago, she has been known over the last 25 years for her highly patterned, intensely refined paintings, sometimes with a rococo flourish, sometimes more hard-edged and rectilinear, always deploying a brilliant coloristic sensibility and tremendous formal invention.  The newest paintings, executed on linen, panel, and paper, feature complex forms constructed of nesting lines that vibrate emphatically and tease the boundaries of the frame, conjuring some previously unheard of combination of Op and Funk.  A related series consists of maze-like objects, delineated with a drop shadow, hovering in space or anchored together like a giant disintegrating alphabet or a psychedelic game of Tetris.  The final set of works has a figurative aspect, with faces or torsos made of interlinked jewelry, rings and strands of pearls conjoined in intricate compositions, the human element a haunting inference.
