Current & Past > Punishment and Protest

Punishment and Protest, creates a visual context to view political action and social unrest through the prism of subtle gesture aided by line, volume, ink and washes of color. This two-person show features the recent wall based works of Chicago artists Jason Dunda and Jaclyn Jacunski. Both Dunda and Jacunski excel in a game of compositional mastery, engaging with subtitle vernacular imagery and language posited against a backdrop of real and imagined public space. Here Dunda exhibits a new untitled series of ink and gouache paintings created this summer at residencies at the Atlantic Center in Florida and Yaddo in Upstate New York. In these works he plays with the act of sabotage, as he disorients the use of objects through their depiction. Jakunski’s 2011-12 series “In Common” spans several media from photography, to etching to screen printing to colleague. As her works are laborious in nature and materially driven it is interesting to note that her subject matter is about the failure of strength and longevity.
