RAW VENUE #22
Designing and producing refined metal furniture in Chicago for the past 19 years, Manifold currently houses a storefront gallery and a manufacturing workshop. The direct connection between the gallery and the workshop reinforces a guiding mission: to overtly preserve the link from the object presented to the process of its crafting.
Marco’s work is an exploration in balance and minimalism; he is constantly exploring the relationships of line quality and shape. After years of designing balanced and pleasing spaces, he began to explore creating visual work to compliment and complete those environments. Cultural iconography plays an important role in the work he is creating in this series. Heavily inspired by ancient pre-Columbian art, especially South American ceramics and textiles, Marco is also influenced by geometric abstraction and the minimalist movements of the 1950’s and 60’s.
Marco Chavarry is a self-taught Peruvian artist living in Chicago. As owner and curator of Alapash New Home, he found a passion for creating beautiful and interesting environments. It was Marco’s work in design that led him to begin to explore his talents in visual art.
While the opening reception is on Saturday evening, we will be open all day Saturday and Sunday (September 15 & 16, from 11am – 6pm) during the Ravenswood Art Walk, so don’t forget that you can make a whole day of getting exposed to art (and beer, and music)!
