Featured Artist: Polly Yates

Polly Yates is a British artist and educator, currently living and working in Chicago. Phantom Limbs and Landscapes brings together three bodies of work whose methods and formal qualities overlap. Although working with found photographs and objects, a comparison to drawing is useful : lines are being drawn, by blade and bandage, which map the contours of memory and absence.

About Manifold

Manifold is a storefront gallery and manufacturing workshop. Engaged in the ongoing conversation occurring in Chicago between art and design, makers and manufacturers, Manifold’s guiding mission is to overtly preserve the link from the object presented to the process of its crafting. In addition to producing metal furniture and sculpture on-site, Manifold features gallery exhibitions and events highlighting issues pertinent to contemporary artists and designers. The owners, Ross and Elizabeth Fiersten, have been designing and building furniture and art in Chicago for over fifteen years.
