"Deva Suckerman: Selected Works"
2007-01-03 until 2007-02-16
Cecilie D. Keenan Gallery, Bailiwick Repertory
Chicago, IL, USA United States of America

Bailiwick Repertory’s Second Sex Series, a new series featuring women in prominence, is delighted to present Deva Suckerman: Selected Works in the Cecilie D. Keenan Gallery of the Bailiwick Arts Center from January 3 to February 16, 2007. The works will accompany Bailiwick’s first two theatrical works of the Second Sex Series – Karen Finley’s THE DREAMS OF LAURA BUSH/THE PASSION OF TERRI SHIAVO and Paula Vogel’s THE OLDEST PROFESSION.

Deva Suckerman is fascinated with the opportunities and challenges involved in creating from found materials. Using wood that is raw, weathered, or flawed in some way, and then transforming these qualities through the female image, is a major focus of her paintings. She enjoys the beauty in accepting and working with the imperfection of her materials and in giving new life to objects that have been discarded. Combining distressed wood canvases with elusive and radiant figures creates an unlikely duality. The mood becomes peaceful and haunting, perfect and flawed.

Deva is an artist, art therapist, and licensed counselor. She has been involved in the Chicago arts community on various levels as an exhibiting artist, director of an alternative gallery space in Pilsen, and through involvement in various non-profit and city funded programs. Deva participated as a visual arts panelist for the 2006 CAAP grant, served two years on ARC Gallery and Educational Foundations’ Board of Directors, and provided the cover image for the 2002 City of Chicago's National Women's History Month Calendar. Deva's work has been reviewed in TimeOut Chicago, received critic's choice recognition in the Chicago Reader and, in 2003, she was a featured artist for Chicago Artists' Month, an annual event sponsored by the Department of Cultural Affairs.
