Bold Move: Thérèse Mulgrew and Robert Porazinski

Friday, Jan 15 – Feb 26, 2021

4839 N. Damen Ave., Chicago, IL 60625

Bold Move is a 2-person exhibition featuring portraiture and still life paintings by Thérèse Mulgrew and abstract, geometric oil paintings and sculptures by Robert Porazinski.

Thérèse Mulgrew is influenced by her mother's surreal oil paintings and her grandmother's impressionist still lifes, she began to cultivate her own style which focuses mainly on depicting large-scale portraits and nostalgic still life in oil paint. Her paintings represent an attempt to explore vulnerability and intimacy.

Robert Porazinski's paintings are a continuation of 20th century artistic traditions – surrealism, objective and non-objective abstraction. The syntheses of these different visual languages continually lead to new and unexpected outcomes.
