A very nice afternoon spent with Chicago artists Michelle Stone and Darrell Roberts at the current Alex Katz exhibition at Gray Warehouse (Richard Gray Gallery), Chicago. I have never been a big follower of his work, but I couldn’t help but feel a sense of his true bravery and integrity when viewing these new stunning and minimal pieces. In particular, “Road 2” seemed to vibrate on the wall like some sort of secret treasure hanging in a perfectly lit cathedral. I also enjoyed photographing Michelle and Darrell taking in the experience of these new enchanted pieces in the equally magical setting of the new gallery space.
