Gwynne Johnson, Milk Moon: Waxing Gibbous, 2013, archival pigment print, 15″ x 15″

Night Without Sleep presents a world drawn in shadows, revealing the contours of our guiding drives, passionate attachments, and forgotten remains. Gwynne Johnson’s photographs reveal the unconscious residue of domestic life through the rhythms of celestial and corporal bodies. Ashley Thomas’s noir-palette drawings and collages depict the objects of her fixation as larger than life or enveloped in darkness, while Jessica Bardsley’s moving image works play with presence and absence to activate the histories of particular spaces. The artists of Night Without Sleep remake their subjects according to their memories, perceptions, and desires, illuminating the periphery of the visible, or quietly revealing what goes unseen by day.

Heaven Gallery: 1550 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60622.

Gallery hours: Friday 2-6pm, Saturday & Sunday 1-6pm.
