Andy Paczos: The Eye and the Hand

Date: 1/20/2019 - 4/28/2019

 Andy Paczos is a direct observation, on-site painter.  He was born in Detroit in 1961, was formally trained as a painter and has been actively painting for 30 years.  

While at the The School at the Art Institute of Chicago receiving his MFA, artist and teacher Ted Halkins, on reviewing Paczos’s work at his studio, recommended that he “look out of the window - there’s lots of good stuff out there.” 
Paczos took the advice and has painted urban environments, primarily in Chicago ever since. His paintings have included classic building-scapes as well as iconic, isolated elements such as expressway lights against the sky.
