JOHN ILG

The Chelsea International Fine Art Competition Exhibition
August 22 - September 11, 2014
Reception: Thursday August 28, 2014 6-8 PM

In John Ilg’s work, familiar objects find themselves rearranged into iconic images. Each of his works mixes a strong sense of color and composition with political commentary and a generous dose of humor. While he uses mundane mass-produced materials in his sculptures (gelcaps, mouse traps), it is the unexpected combination of these items that carries the message and creates psychological depth as well as a vivid physical presence.

“I start with an abstract social/political/economic reality,” says the artist, “and from it create a profoundly ambiguous ‘object’ — both clear and vague, confrontational yet accessible.”
