Anna Kunz: Venus reflects art’s reliance on chance, associative color and poetic reordering of form, especially as it all springs forth from disparate memories and experiences. This reflexive exhibition includes a large-scale installation comprised of painted gauze scrims and video projection by an artist who is well-known for creating surprising color palettes via distinctly painterly projects in a variety of different media, from traditional paintings on canvas and works on paper to site-specific sculpture and video and light installations.

Recent exhibitions include Heroes For Ghosts, Galleri Urbane, Dallas; C2C Project Space, San Francisco; Registers at LVL3 in Chicago; Luminae at White Box NYC; Spectral Landscape at Gallery 400 UIC; and The Smart Museum at the University of Chicago.
