FOUND:RE Contemporary and FOUND:RE Phoenix Hotel are excited to announce their newest exhibition, “Good Grief”. This exhibition cycle will present the work of Chestnut, who was born and raised in the Northeast. The fundamentals of his art are rooted in cartoons, fine art, and graffiti.
“Good Grief” is the prologue of a larger collection of work. This work highlights the struggles of mental health and the vices we use to cope. Depicting these heavier topics through cartoons, Chestnut hopes to leave the viewer with no interpretations, just an understanding.
“Good Grief” will be hung in the studio space at FOUND:RE Phoenix, with Chestnut live painting in the space on Wednesdays from 6-8pm. The exhibition opens to the public on July 7 and runs through October 1, 2023 with the opening reception on July 7, 6-9pm. The exhibition will be presented as part of FOUND:RE Contemporary’s regular schedule of rotating exhibitions organized by curator Jordan Zurn. The majority of works will be for sale and patrons can preview the prices online at foundrecontemporary.com.
