Explore artist CJ Pyle’s approach and the influence others have had on him in this latest exhibition at the Carl Hammer Gallery. The exhibition in Chicago, Illinois, is titled ‘Another Slipping Glimpser’.
The show features distinct and different portraits by the artist evoking various layers of meaning and signification. The play with language is at the heart of this exhibition, involving a freer form of inquiry. Pyle’s work seems to suggest an affinity with that of Willem de Kooning. The Pylian visual language that the artist has developed is a signature style of his and is infused with humor and fun. Pyle’s creations offer a different perspective of the vernacular legacies of the Chicago Imagists. His influence is evident from the works on display at the Carl Hammer Gallery.
