The Arts Club of Chicago welcomes German painter Kerstin Brätsch for her first solo exhibition “Pele’s Curse” opening today, which encompasses special collaborative works from other European professionals. The New York-based artist’s paintings in this show exist from the co-creation of many hands—Dirk Lange, a marble professional from Germany; Gaylen Gerber, a Chicago-based curator; and Mariechen Danz, a textile artist that bases a handful of work off of Brätsch’s marbling patterns. “Pele’s Curse” also features past collaborations that Brätsch has had with other artists, and tests the audience’s familiarity with painting: paper marbling, baked antique glass, sliced agate, and stained glass brushstrokes defy the association of regular paintings, and offer something more to the public.
Kerstin Brätsch’s work is on view at The Arts Club of Chicago until December 19.
