NOËL MORICAL - Friendly Ghosts
March 3 - April 14, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, March 3, 6-9pm
In the gallery’s Back Room, Noël Morical’s suspended sculptures employ the age old knotting technique of macramé to explore tension, endurance, and self-reliant form language, transmuting the technique beyond its domestic and practical 1960’s reincarnation. A vibrant color palette of paracord and an intuitive playfulness lend the work its charm and curiously inviting nature.
Noël Morical (American, b. 1989) lives and works between Chicago, IL and Kansas City, MO. She received her B.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011. Her recent solo exhibition “High Swoon” was presented at Andrew Rafacz Gallery, Chicago and at the Fiberspace Gallery, Stockholm. Group and two-person exhibitions include Weinburg-Newton Gallery, Chicago; 99¢ Plus Gallery, Brooklyn; Athen B. Gallery, Oakland, CA; SLOW, Chicago; and LVL3, Chicago.
