"Bright and Beautiful"
new paintings by Chai Wolfman
Uncommon Ground Lakeview location
3800 N. Clark Street, Chicago, IL

This group of paintings stems from the idea that every person has something positive to offer the world. In our individual ways, we can all shine a light, motivate, inspire, and feel. Sometimes we need a reminder to look for the beauty in ourselves and in each other. The title of this show is not intended to describe the art itself as bright and beautiful. Rather, the title highlights the idea that if we look closely, the feeling of bright and beautiful can be found everywhere.


Guiding a painting through the sewing machine connects me to past generations who created quilts to warm their loved ones. I infuse that same love and intention of warmth into my paintings.

My imagined landscapes blend buildings and natural elements. I use paint and thread to create a world of color and texture that is grounded in hope.
