Time & Location
Chicago artists, Eli Merritt & Roland Santana come together for ‘Mutations’. This exhibition seeks to explore the ever-evolving understanding of human interaction and perception of an environment. Their presentation of both two and three-dimensional works mediate a middle ground, inviting the viewer to wander in a place where the lines between mediums are blurred. Marks bounce around the canvases and onto the floor where they conglomerate to form hybrid objects. Merritt's sculptures propose a world where nature and industrialism collide to create singular forms. Santana's minimalist paintings give a perspective to colors that surround us in contemporary living. This grouping of works by Merritt and Santana provide an opportunity to reflect on material as their instincts guide the way for these necessary object mutations.
