Bert Green Fine Art is pleased to present our third solo show by Mac Pierce, and our first show by Mikey Mosher. Both artists are based in Chicago and are recent MFA graduates from the School of the Art Institute. They have conspired to exhibit their solo works under a single concept: The Keys to the Castle. On Saturday, March 23, 1-4pm, the last day of the show, both artists are releasing limited editions which will also be featured at EXPO Chicago in the Bert Green Fine Art booth #374.

Mac Pierce critically engages with weaponized emerging technologies via coding, 3D printing, data automation, and cryptography. Pierce examines issues surrounding government power and its nemesis, the exposure of classified information. Pierce presents this capture and storage of strategically important information as a metaphor for a contemporary redefinition of sacred icons and objects.

Mikey Mosher arranges extremely ordinary, everyday objects which quietly reference religious imagery. These items expose a spiritual truth hiding behind day-to-day life, revealing their origins in religiosity in ordinary American culture. Mosher’s object assemblages are created as sculptural tableaux which are then digitally rendered as lenticulars, presented in custom, digitally fabricated frames.
