Excerpt from interview with 2010-2012 Merchandise Mart-Works on Paper Residency Artists
…Lisa Goesling's Black Scratchboard of floral compositions have a Durer-esque level of detail and care. The Works on Paper Residency is a good show and I'm glad it is a little hidden, it's worth the searching. For those interested in process, it's there. If you have to know why, the artist is there to discuss it. If you just like poking around in someone else's stuff, (and who doesn't?), you can do that too. And if you want to see a cross-section of how six Chicago artists take a common medium and run with it, you'll most definitely get your fill.
