Dandelion Gallery is pleased to present the artwork of Hans Habeger. "Urban Landscapes" will open Saturday, Jan. 19, and continue until Friday, Feb. 9. The opening reception is from 5-9 p.m. during the January ArtWauk in downtown Waukegan.
The artist describes the concept for this body of work: "For the past 10 years, I have focused on painting and drawing urban landscapes. This current series of work focuses on the facades of strip malls and big box stores in suburban Chicago.
"The settings are mundane spaces often unnoticed as they are passed. I find these subjects in my immediate surroundings visually appealing due to their architecture, quality of light, sense of space, and arrangement of formal design elements that emphasize the abstract qualities of the subject. I see the works as deliberate constructions, adjusted as needed to create balance, unity and a sense of place."
