Printmakers extraordinaire, Nadine and Nick of Sonnezimmer have a show opening this Friday night at The Post Family.
Info from the Post Family site...
As Sonnenzimmer, Nadine Nakanishi and Nick Butcher have created screen printed posters for clients as varied as Throbbing Gristle, Andrew Bird, The Newberry Library, and Human Rights Watch. Using a mixture of chance abstraction, modernist typography, and representational imagery, the duo has created a unique aesthetic that pulls from various movements in art history while remaining distinctly forward thinking.
Vorab Fabrik or “Beforehand Factory” is the duo’s first exclusive solo gallery show focusing on their non commissioned art work. Pulling from such influences as minimalism, arte povera, and abstract expressionism, the two are creating work that forgoes the functionality of the poster yet retains the graphic quality found in their commercial work. Vorab Fabrik features new paintings, prints, and installations.
Opening reception, Friday, February 26, 2010
7 to 11 pm
The Post Family
1821 W Hubbard St, 2nd floor
This show will be on view through March 19, 2010.
