Chicago Imagist and Hairy Who artist, Gladys Nilsson humorously incorporates observations from the everyday into her densely-packed and vibrant works of art. Whether she is in the waiting room at the doctor’s office or boarding a plane, Nilsson delights in the interactions of people, distinct pieces of clothing, and odd bits of conversation. The resulting works underscore our flawed and shared humanity while highlighting the comical interactions that pervade the mundane.

Out of This World includes layered collages, watercolors, paintings, and prints that span 40 years of Nilsson’s career.
