International Randomness

Out of the Shadows
Yoonshin Park & Richard Shipps
Hyndman Gallery
April 16 – June 25, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, May 6, 5-8 PM (CDT)
Yoonshin Park and Richard Shipps’ paper installations convey a fragile balance, yet can be shaped to create complex volume, surface, and presence. Yoonshin Park creates paper, whereas Richard Shipps cuts it. Parks creates paper using a pulp mixture of cotton and abaca.  The process of creating paper intrigues Park because of the boundless possibilities for how she can incorporate and use it as a medium. "I strive to communicate with viewers about being fragile, fragmented and vulnerable." As an immigrant, Park uses her experience of being in a new environment to question space and its implications in defining one's identity as the inspiration behind her work. Shipps on the other hand has long been fascinated by the interplay of light and shadow and how that interaction reveals form in many interesting ways. Whether he is working in cut paper or steel sculpture, his work is a subtractive process, removing a cut shape to reveal other shapes in a framework of both positive and negative space.


Richard Shipps studied at Albion College, Detroit Society of Arts & Crafts, and Wayne State University. He began exhibiting his art in the Detroit area in the 1960s. Simultaneously, he began working in creative production. As an artist/designer/producer he applied himself to film & video animation. He received over 40 awards for creative and technological innovation, including the Grand Award from the International Film and Television Festival of New York. In 2006 Richard moved to Chicago, where he currently resides, and re-focused his fine art discipline. He spent a year as a resident artist and executive committee co-chair with the Chicago Artists Coalition Gallery. He has participated in Artprize for several years, exhibiting large scale cut paper work. His work has recently been exhibited in several venues in Europe, and a variety of exhibitions in the US.

Signatures of All Things
Doug Stapleton 
Brincka/Cross Gallery
April 16 – June 25, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, May 6, 5-8 PM (CDT)

Doug Stapleton re-configures found images into ambiguous narrative collages that often refer to the original source, but alters the message. Using his background in anthropology and art history, Stapleton is able to use his knowledge to construct his collages. “I play loosely with symbols and metaphors from art history, language, and religion to create new images that are strongly representational, with an attention to precise cutting and visual consistency, and a nod toward absurd, implied narrative,” explains Stapleton.

Bio: Doug Stapleton is an artist, curator and educator. Currently he is an adjunct faculty in the Interdisciplinary Arts graduate program at Columbia College Chicago. Stapleton's work has been the subject of two solo exhibitions at the Chicago Cultural Center and Loyola University Museum of Art, Chicago in 2012.  He received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1989, and a BA in Anthropology from University of Delaware with a minor concentration in Art History and Ceramics.


The Davenport Brothers

Discarded Memories
Kass Copeland
Susan Block Gallery
April 16 – June 25, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, May 6, 5-8 PM (CDT)

Copeland re-constructs discarded furniture and household items found in the alleys of her Chicago neighborhood to create recycled mixed media pieces.  Often returning to childhood stories and rhymes as resources, her work is rooted in this narrative foundation. Like joining words together to form a story, her pieces reveal themselves as new objects with completely separate histories.

Bio: Copeland is an artist and designer who has worked in Chicago since 1995. Prior to earning her BFA from The Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida, she studied and apprenticed with her father, a theatrical and circus prop designer and craftsman.
