Victor Shanchuk Opens at The Burchfield

VICTOR SHANCHUK, CHEMICAL LIGHT

On View Friday, April 12–Sunday, July 28, 2019

BSA member Victor Shanchuck, Jr. brings a deep commitment to experimentation and production and connects This exhibition includes several works that haven’t been exhibited, including liquid-like observational figure drawings from the 1970s that were made using various photographic chemicals in place of traditional drawing materials.

Also included are his Polarization slide-projector installations from the 1980s and 1990s that contain hand-made slides of collaged and manipulated plastic sheeting sandwiched between transparent polarizing material. Bursting with abstract form and color, the Polarizations are perhaps his most original and significant moment as an artist.
