Jim Zimpel’s Western @ Hungry Man


Un Peintre de Chicago, Jim Zimpel showcases his new interdisciplinary collection, Western at the Hungry Man art gallery in Wicker Park. Zimpel’s Western is in the form of sculpture as well as video. He explores the long forgotten era of the American fontier culture through ficional media (Hollywood movies to folklore). “These are the products of assumptions and a mass media based understanding of the world. They function in the blurred realm of the seemingly authentic, the regulated imaginary, and the mundane grandiose”.
A part time professor at Columbia College, Zimpel received his Bachelors of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute and UIC in 2008.

Egon, a protégé of Gustav Klimt, is most recognised for his extreme artistic exploration of the human form. Schiele displays somewhat jolting images of fetishism, eroticism and mortality that are pornographic in nature.

Eagon’s work is influential to modern artist such as Peter Chung, creator of
Æon Flux (1992)
