John Arndt's recent Gardening at Night series offers subtle meditations on environmentally sustainable practices, from sculptures encasing compost to monochromatic paintings made from compost tea. The artist repurposes discarded materials into sculptures and paintings that question authentic versus synthetic nature. Arndt's work has been exhibited in Chicago, New York, Houston, and Rome. He received his M.F.A. from the University of Illinois at Chicago and lives and works in Forest Park, IL. Gardening at Night will continue through December 13.
