On Chicago Abstraction

John Neff examines at abstraction in Chicago.  He writes: "For a long time, Chicago art has been strongly identified with an eccentric and often grotesquely or humorously distorted variety of figure painting... but it’s not the whole story of painting in Chicago." Neff looks at the work of several painters including Robert Nickle, Holt Quentel, Julia Fish and Michelle Grabner.
