Dave Jordano's Prairieland

"This body of work is from a new project that is currently ongoing. It's about rural Illinois and small towns. It deals with cultural aspects that I feel personify rural life here in Illinois. I hope I've approached this project with an objective point of view and have attempted to let myself and my work be directed by the environment within which I travel in. I have discovered that much of what I've seen is not the expected idyllic prairie state covered with beautiful rolling fields of tall grasses. Instead, Illinois is a state long monopolized by mechanized agricultural farming, creating endless fields of corn and soybeans and leaving several hundred economically challenged older small towns dotting the landscape."—Dave Jordano

This week, Anne Kelly, Associate Gallery Director, has chosen Tom Chambers Burning Bush, 2008.

"In composing a variety of stark, woodland settings in contrast with a billowy dress or other man-made articles, I explore the dichotomy between what is natural and what is fabricated. Why do people costumed in formal dress seem so omnipotent on the street, yet so vulnerable in the wild? Each of these compositions explores a place where unexpected circumstances collide."—Tom Chambers
