THE DISTANCE INWARD
Embracing manipulated photographic appropriation, Sarah Mosk and Bryan Lear present a series of images that both reveal and obscure the materiality, meaning and sources of their images. These works repurpose a variety of lush image surface to invent poetic metaphysical sensations and spaces in the form of collage and print.

THE HILLS ESTHETIC CENTER is both a conventional and organic exhibition space located within a complex of artist’s studios and audio recording facilities on Chicago’s west side. Focusing on emerging artists and local arts initiatives, the space aims to promote a breadth of cultural production and invention in the service of independent artistic expression. We value a relaxed artist-controlled environment with the potential for the interaction of critical and social dialogues.
