here to go
September 20 – November 8, 2014
CES Gallery is pleased to present here to go, a solo presentation by Greg Stimac. From a distance, Greg Stimac’s works appear as constellations. Upon closer inspection, the “stars” are discovered to be predominantly insects that were immortalized against a Plexiglass surface mounted to Stimac’s car while he drove across the USA. Known as the “Driving Photograph” series, the works are conceptual maps of the atmospheric terrain, pinpointing the ephemeral topography of virtually invisible bodies that hover over the landscape.
Greg Stimac (b. 1976) lives and works nomadically in California. He received his B.A. from Columbia. College, Chicago in 2005 and his M.F.A. from Stanford University in 2013. His work resides in the collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Berkeley Art Museum; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; the Museum of Contemporary Photography, Chicago; and the Museum of Modern Art Library, New York. Stimac has shown in several museum exhibitions across the US; most recently at the Museum for Contemporary Photograpy, Chicago (2014) and at the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft (2013).
