Misty Autumn Rain in Chicago
Brilliant fall colors sprinkle like confetti across the canvas reflecting on the curved glass of the Crate & Barrell building and wet pavement in Misty Autumn Rain in Chicago. The cadmium yellows and oranges complement the misty cobalt and ultramarine blues creating an active two dimensional surface in tension with the three dimensional illusion. It is reminiscent of French and American Impressionism. Misty Autumn Rain in Chicago is a contemporary genre subject painted in Cheney’s unique Postmodern Impressionist style. It is part of Postmodern Impressions, an exhibition of paintings, drawings, and limited edition graphics at the famed Atlas Galleries on Chicago’s North Michigan Avenue. This work explores the unique character of the contemporary city, and its people.
