Line Dot is thrilled to present an exclusive new collection of currency collages by Curtis William Readel. Join us on Saturday, February 23rd for a reception with the artist from 6:00-9:00pm.

Based in Chicago, Curtis William Readel is an artist and printmaker/co-owner of Pop!nk Editions. Reflecting and responding to his personal interactions with money and success, Readel constructs visual criticisms on power, consumptive greed, and the absurdity within our current social evaluations of wealth and accomplishment. From referencing monetary images to using actual currency, he creates semi-satiric, political commentaries that challenge our distorted views of financial normalcy and success. His work has been exhibited domestically and internationally in Brussels, New York, Kiev, and Bucharest among others.
