Maire Kennedy

Artist Statement:

my work deals with altering conceptions regarding technology, organic substances, consumerism, the human condition and combinations thereof. methods for discussing these topics include taking objects out of context, repeating mass-produced elements, gestalt theory applications as well as twisting meaning through specific title and object manipulation.

past solo shows at heaven gallery and the union league club of chicago; recent group shows at klein art works, aron packer gallery and open end art; curator of local/international show blueblood/blue collar; select work in international collections; awards include caap grants, atc curator's choice selections; upcoming guest lecturer at the school of the art institute.
