Stephen Daly's "Drawings and Sculpture" Exhibit

Cryptic languages, hidden doors, secret passageways and escape hatches: expect to find this and more in Stephen Daly's "Drawings and Sculpture" exhibit at Gremillion & Co. It is the modus operandi of this former professor of art (now Professor Emeritus, University of Texas) to challenge and lead the viewers into drawing their own conclusions, leaving just enough clues to guide the way.

Daly uses the letter format, with salutation, rows of communication and signature, in both 3/25/14 Letter and 3/8/12 Letter, but the language was none I had encountered before. It is a linguistic foil, not really saying anything, but offering the possibility of communication. Calligraphic characters, pretend redactions and autonomous images are arranged in a collective way to create an atmosphere that allows the reader to enter the work.

The piece is one of 30 selected from the state of Illinois and members of International Sculpture Center (ISC) Chapters. Works were on display outdoors on the lake between June 2012 and May 2013.
