March 7 – April 8

Artist: Fred Stonehouse

Location: Building H, Safey-Kleen Gallery, 1700 Spartan Drive, Elgin, IL

Description: In this new group of paintings and works on paper, my characters are seen attempting to communicate in various ways. They weep, bleed, sweat and speak to each other, never quite connecting in the ways that they had hoped to. The inexact nature of their limited language leads them to half expressed thoughts and doubly expressed emotions. The earnest attempts at communion are simultaneously poignant and ridiculous.
