Curtis Frillmann, "Iron Pastorals"
Most recently recognized for his recycled paintings, Frillmanns has created
a series of environmentalist
pieces that are painted on a "canvas" of discarded objects. In this newest
series, Frillmann employs recycled
objects such as weathered sheet metal to create canvases that evoke the
memory of Chicago's farmland
roots on formed remnants of today's industrialized world. Frillmann builds
up surfaces on formally constructed
found object canvases to reflect the struggle of savage and urbane forces
and to illustrate the influence man
has over the land.
