Untitled (white), 2005

In this first solo museum exhibition of Chicago painter Scott Short (b. 1964), The Renaissance Society presents the artist?s recent works in which notions of color and abstraction are boldly reinterpreted.   Short painstakingly reproduces the effect of repeatedly-photocopied sheets of colored construction paper, creating complex and obsessively detailed paintings in black and white.  In this process, the copy becomes the original, with the machine assuming a creative role in the production of abstraction.
