Roberta Kozuch ~ Layers

Opening June 8th for preview, Gallery 180 of The Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago will present the multi layered paintings of Roberta Kozuch.

Influenced by the International Style of design, each piece in this series of paintings references a strong grid system. Much of the imagery is created by combining strips of re-purposed paint-splashed canvas, found typography and found imagery. The paintings are then reevaluated and reworked into powerful statements of pattern and texture. Kozuch explains...
“The paintings become representations of the experiences we encounter as we move through our lives—and the layers of experiences, which make us who we are.”

The work of Roberta Kozuch will be presented at Gallery 180 of The Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago through July 22. An Opening Reception will take place on Friday, June 10 from 5:30-7:30 pm. This exhibition is free and open to the public. All works are available for purchase. Gallery 180 is located at 180 N. Wabash—at the corner of Lake and Wabash—in Chicago’s Loop. The gallery is open Monday through Thursday from 8am-8pm, Friday 8am-5:30pm and Saturday 9am-5pm. Additional information can be found at gallery180.com
