Volume Gallery will debut an exhibition of new works by designer Thaddeus Wolfe, titled: ASSEMBLAGE.
Volume Gallery will take over Gallery Two of Andrew Rafacz Gallery in an ongoing series highlighting work from American contemporary designers.
In his first solo exhibition in Chicago, ASSEMBLAGE showcases Wolfe’s unique works in glass created through a specialized technique, inspired by mineral and crystalline formations.
“I am producing forms that have the appearance of being built up – and are also fractured and coming apart.“
The ASSEMBLAGE series, Wolfe provides a distinct aesthetic link between the state of minerals and observing them in their relation to modernist sculpture and architecture. The angular sides of Wolfe’s creations have the appearance of naturally occurring circumstances of cubic crystallization but represent the careful curation of form.
