Shadow Type by Fred Eerdekens
About a week ago we attended the Next and Art Chicago shows at the Merchandise Mart in River North. This metal, shadow type by Fred Eerdekens definitely caught our eye and made us stop and really look at the way an object can cast a shadow that is both interesting and different from the object itself. We decided to take this away from the show and onto the streets of Chicago- studying the way a shadow changes as its object moves about and observing the shadows we pass on a daily basis.
The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery. – Francis Bacon
