George Shipperley: Poet of Line and Color Aurora, Illinois artist, George Shipperley creates dreamlike landscapes and still-lives exquisitely rendered in oil pastel. Though these scenes often seem to recall real places, Shipperley is driven purely by imagination and improvisation, creating harmonious compositions with rhythmic design. Shipperley’s work has been featured in numerous publications including the Pastel Journal and the Artist Magazine garnering a prestigious first place award from the Oil Pastel Society. Group Show: Birds & Beasts The dichotomy of Birds and Beasts can be read as an allegory for two halves of human existence. While birds with their freedom to fly have been used as devices to symbolize our aspirations, imaginations, and spirituality, beasts are categorically earthly and represent aspects of our being that link us to our animal cousins. Namely, birds personify our desires while beasts highlight our physicality— hunger, vulnerability, and our earthly obligations.

Working in a variety of media, including photography, video, collage, sound and sculpture, Isaac disrupts and plays with narrative storytelling, viewpoint, and time. In her installation in No. 5, Isaac builds off of her previous works, examining natural phenomena, language, and mortality. Isaac has exhibited in galleries, project spaces and museums nationally and her short films have been shown in numerous film festivals.
