Dr. Nina Levent founder of Sapar Contemporary says: We are excited about taking part in the Expo Chicago for the third year, and especially thrilled because we are presenting a Chicago-themed booth! This is the first time for us to work with a Chicago-based artist Jessica Campbell who has just had an amazing solo show at MCA. We will also be showing works by Zsofia Schweger who had done extensive research on Chicago architecture. Schweger notes, "my new paintings take Chicago's Frank Lloyd Wright Home & Studio and Robie House as their subject. This project has given me a chance to consider the concept of house museums, and by extension domestic environments and the idea of home in general; yet, it was these two buildings' connection to the Midwestern landscape that most captivated me. Wright has claimed that the broad, flat landscape of the American Midwest inspired the dramatic horizontal lines of his Prairie style buildings. Similarly, my own straight line aesthetic was influenced by my upbringing in the Great Plains of Hungary. This is the unexpected, serendipitous connection that has driven my engagement with these iconic Chicago interiors."
