PRESS RELEASE

 

 

In the West Wing, Corbett vs. Dempsey presents Like It Is: Paris Portraits, new paintings by Hedwig Eberle.  An exceptional young painter based in Germany and France, she is currently the recipient of the Cité international des arts Award in Paris. Eberle holds a degree from the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich, and is a 2001 graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago, where she received a Fulbright scholarship. Her work relates to some of Chicago’s existential figurative painters of the 1950s, but with a distinctively contemporary visage.  Daringly painted with subtle and counter-intuitive color strategies, Eberle’s small heads are at once brutal and beautiful.

An opening reception will be held at Corbett vs. Dempsey on Saturday, July 27th, from 5:00 – 8:00pm.
