Just in time for Valentine's Day at Zg Gallery in Chicago: With Love is a series of new paintings and an interactive and evolving installation by Beth Reitmeyer to celebrate "pure, happy, exuberant, over-the-top love." As obsessive as love itself, Reitmeyer's new works employ repetitive patterns of hearts in colors traditionally associated with love: flaming reds, purples and hot pinks.
Viewers will enter a room strung with handmade valentine postcards and are invited to express their feelings to a loved one through the selection of a "love" drawing. In return, they are asked to leave behind another card expressing something about the intended recipient of the drawing. The installation, With Love, not only celebrates love itself, but also the people who are loved.
