If you are in the Chicago area, make sure to stop by the Schneider Gallery for blog favorite Reuben Wu’s latest exhibition titled Distant Suns. Opening reception night is this Friday, January 10th, and will run through March 1st 2014, alongside Lynn Saville.
Some words from the gallery on Reuben’s work:
Somewhere between 1970s concept album art, expeditionary imagery, and Surrealist painting is where Reuben Wu’s photographs steadfastly sit. His are pictures made in the real world, however, through collapsing time and merging processes, the real is transformed into the surreal, evoking a response simultaneously familiar and foreign. The photographs amplify the strangeness of place and speak to Wu’s individual experience within it.

Swiss visual artist Andy Denzler’s work moves between abstraction and reality. These glitch paintings sort of feel like distant memories, buried in the subconscious or snap shots of dreams.
Rupert Vandervell’s series Man on Earth is less about the environment they are taken in and more about the ‘human factor’ moving through it.
Captured against the ever-changing backdrop of the modern city, these photographs highlight the presence of life and the unique visual
characteristics of the human form against the urban background.
In the words of Rupert himself:
I wanted to portray a feeling of isolation and, though remaining distant from the subject, I wanted to intrude just a little on this solitude. In our crowded world, moments like these are becoming harder to imagine.
