The exhibition, Single Use: New Work from Nick Albertson, opened on January 31 and will run until March 7, 2014. Albertson’s work in Single Use “continues his exploration of everyday household items, using photography and video”. The works on display are studied and precise. Surely your blogger was impressed by the aesthetic prowess of this young artist. Considering photography as a study of light, one will observe how the artist’s eye transforms sandwich bags and paper cones into complex and engrossing textures.
Tonight’s gallery walk presents the perfect opportunity to see and engage with the galleries of Chicago’s West Loop.
Nick Albertson (b. 1983, Boston, Massachusetts) received his MFA in Photography at Columbia College Chicago. He received his BA in Photography from Bard College in 2006. His work has been exhibited in Chicago, Portland, Seattle, and New York as well as internationally at the Pingyao International Photo Festival.
Special thanks to Nick Albertson, Jefferson Godard, and Jeroen Nelemans.
