For the Fall show we are excited to pair the work of two Chicago based artists, Carrie Gundersdorf and Katie Loomis.
Gundersdorf is both a painter and collagist. Following an interest in imagery of astronomical and weather phenomena she builds collages that play with repetition and pattern using the found images of sunspots, lightning strikes and the Aurora Borealis. The familiar imagery is abstracted and reframed through repetition and patterning in a way that touches on a long history in art from traditional crafts to high modernism.
Also pulling inspiration from scientific imagery of the universe and geologic formations, Katie Loomis' paintings investigate the line between control and spontaneity. She uses careful manipulations of paint to create perfect edges of color paired with a more random, dye-like staining technique where paint is applied into un-sized canvas. She achieves phenomenal effects and vivid colors evoking a tension of opposite aesthetic impulses.

Jarmo Koponen is a photographer and painter, native to Finland and currently living in Minneapolis. Lula is presenting a series of landscapes and abstract architectural forms. The images are quiet and contemplative, with an underlying, subtle tension. Kaponen's work has been shown internationally. This is his first exhibition in Chicago.
Alex Cohen's work could hardly be more different. Cohen is a painter and ceramicist born and raised in Chicago whose work is colorful, playful, warm and loose. Lula is presenting a selection of his portraits. His subjects are straightforward and close at hand including his friends and family, icons of hip hop and skateboarding and at least one influential sitcom from the 1980s.
