Opening Reception Friday, May 3rd from 6 – 9 pm
OS Projects is pleased to present Seams Apparent, featuring paintings by Maureen Fritchen and sculptural objects by Gina Lee Robbins, for its inaugural exhibition. The show opens Friday evening, May 3 and continues through Saturday, July 13, 2019.
In Seams Apparent, Fritchen and Robbins reinvent the byproducts of contemporary, urban life into a new kind of natural reflection. Both artists work intuitively with discarded industrial materials, using unusual techniques to produce startling results. Fritchen’s abstract landscapes and Robbins’ organic sculptures breathe life into manufacturing waste like rubber, corrugated cardboard, and magazines. Accumulated into a harmonious tension of angles and curves, the narratives of these materials are not entirely hidden but rather lie just below their irregular surfaces.
About the Artists
Maureen Fritchen (Racine, WI) produces paintings that investigate the formal aspects of industrial waste and the manner in which these materials create connections to place and people. She has been exhibiting her work in museums, galleries and art centers throughout the Midwest and has had her work featured in several surveys of regional art.
Gina Lee Robbins (Oak Park, IL) is a visual and teaching artist who creates sculptural objects in clay and found materials. Her work has been exhibited in solo, invitational and group exhibitions throughout the United States, including, most recently, a solo exhibit at Northern Illinois University’s Jack Olson Gallery. Robbins’ works are included in private and corporate collections worldwide.
About OS Projects
OS Projects is a contemporary art gallery in downtown Racine featuring visual artists in solo and small group exhibits. The gallery’s primary focus is on artists living and working in the Chicago-Kenosha-Racine-Milwaukee urban corridor. While the range of media the gallery presents is broad—encompassing painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, video/film and installation—the exhibited artists are unified in their engagement with topical issues, experimentation with materials and processes, and adherence to craft.
