In this exhibition tour, Chicago-based artists John Henderson and B. Ingrid Olson share their perspectives on David Maljković’s various works, in which painting, photography and sculpture converge.
Henderson’s own works also blur the lines between mediums, as he uses different processes to engage with painting, including casting, printing, and electrotyping. Olson’s photographs and sculptures deploy various materials and presentation methods, often in tune with the artist’s and viewers’ bodies.
