Subtext: Mixed Media Works by Lucinda Alston and Philip High  
  April 9th - Logsdon 1909 - 1909 S. Halsted St. Chicago  
  Logsdon 1909 Gallery is proud to announce the opening of a two man show of work by Lucinda Alston Chapman and Philip High. The show entitled Subtext will feature recent sculptures, mixed media collages and paintings.

Lucinda Alston Chapman and Philip High collaboratively wrote the following to communicate their ideas behind making work for the Subtext show:

Information is a hallmark of our age. And whether intentional or imagined, every exchange of information carries multiple layers of implication and interpretation. In these two diverse bodies of work, found object constructions by Lucinda Alston Chapman and acrylic and Tyvek paintings by Philip High, both artists have lifted elements from the vocabulary of form and function we typically associate with written communication and reassembled them into new visual syntax. In this context, once familiar symbols become abstracted and are more about potential than point. From alphabet blocks and carved books to undecipherable script and dissected letter-forms, our graphic expectations are playfully subverted and reveal the deeper subtexts of imagination, perception and subjective relationships.

The show opens at the Chicago Arts District during the Second Friday Event on April 9, 2010 from 6:00 to 10:00 PM with an artists reception open to the general public. The exhibition will be on view until May 8, 2010.
