Mark Riesterer Exhibit

Image by Mark RiestererApril 9th to May 2nd

Closing reception on Wednesday, April 30th at 12:30 p.m.

Mark Riesterer is an emerging, Chicago-based artist. He earned a BA in art from Lake Forrest College in 2009. His work has been exhibited in Chicago, Colorado and India. The paintings on exhibit reflect the artist's interest in stained glass, illustration, the urban landscape and light. His imagery of geometric and architectural features are softened by painterly edges and brushstrokes that evoke dreamy spaces and memories of distant places. Saturated hues create figures and plant-like forms that appear recognizable yet somewhat unfamiliar or strange.
