Kansas City artist Kacy Maddux, whose headless sketches in the University of Chicago Renaissance Society's "All My Pretty Corpses" exhibition caught a lot of attention in 2005, is to be featured again in the Windy City.

This time her fine illustrations are to be featured in a solo exhibition at the Gescheidle gallery in downtown Chicago. These free-hand drawings appear to riff on the theme of anatomy and symmetry while remaining fairly abstract. It's an interesting installment in this 27 year-old artist's career, presenting "empirical information metaphorically, and intuitive misunderstandings literally." The result is equal parts new age and science class, to stunning effect.
