PAINTINGS & SCULPTURES
AND TALK ABOUT THE OEUVRE
of KOSTIS GEORGIOU
2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
"The aim of art is to represent not the outward
appearance of things, but their inward significance." -Plato
A pixel, short for picture element, is the smallest element of an image that can be illuminated or darkened. And so it is, with the paintings and sculptures of Kostis Georgiou. Infused with an alchemy of brilliant colors, these smallest elements burst with emotion and lyricism. Please join us as we welcome Kostis Georgiou to Chicago for an exhibition of his paintings and sculptures following his 5-museum tour in China.
Exhibition runs through April 12th, 2013

The next chapter in this collaborative exhibition between three galleries addresses the themes of symmetry, color and an deeper exploration into the history of birth through death (or transmutation of energy).
WHAT IS SOUL?
John W. Clark pursues painting as an end in itself, as well as a means to exploring themes related to architecture and design. In addition to painting, John is a Chicago based architect and planner, and partner in a diversified architecture and planning firm. He is especially interested in work that unites the concerns of various disciplines. At a time when so much process is becoming computerized, he considers painting especially important because it deals directly with form, harmony, color and theme: freely, and independently of technical demands.
John has won national design and design/build competitions. He has been recognized for his architectural work for a series of innovative projects. Recent work includes master planning projects in China. He has designed a broad range of projects ranging from large-scale municipal, institutional and educational facilities to high-rise, multi-use office and hotel complexes. John has completed a wide variety of significant projects involving urban planning, municipal, historic, and contextual design.
John W. Clark studied architecture and planning at the University of Illinois in a program that included study at the École des Beaux-Arts in Versailles, France. He studied visual arts at the Art Institute of Chicago, where he also taught on the Faculty. He did postgraduate studies at Northwestern University. His architecturally-themed paintings have been widely exhibited, and are included in various collections, including the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.
