El Gato Chimney, a Milan based artist, paints a surreal history of invented animal kingdoms. His paintings portray the tension of duality: the beautiful and the bizarre, the humorous and the horrific. The artist’s formal techniques and style compare to naturalist James John Audubon, but his depictions of real and imagined creatures and landscapes relate to the bizarre scenes of Hieronymus Bosch. Chimney’s paintings present a deceptive world awaiting deciphering, describing the vices and the virtues of a world split between a daytime utopia and an unquiet night.

TYPE Portrait – Tangible TYPE, featuring the work of Yeohyun Ahn and Teokyeom Lee, explores the symbiotic relationship of technology, design and typography. Typography, often an invisible art form behind human language, dates back to the birth of written language. Today, digital cameras, 3D printing and other emerging technologies provide new opportunities for innovation and exploration.
My name is Dustin Reinholtz, I am a photographer born and raised in Wisconsin. I’ve always enjoyed exploration; seeing and experiencing places I’ve never been before, and finding adventure there. My sense of adventure really developed during my time as an Infantry Officer in the United States Army. BlueCord.Imagery is derived from my experiences serving this country, my sense of adventure, and my love of photography. I am most interested in photographing the American Southwest, and of course, my home state of Wisconsin.
I believe Wisconsin offers some of the best natural scenery in the U.S., bolstered by the best fall foliage transition and the four seasons. Our state also offers some of the most iconic structures in the Midwest. These ideas serve as the inspiration for this gallery, and I invite you to come and enjoy our Natural and Iconic Wisconsin.
I’d like to thank you for taking the time to visit this gallery and experience my work, I certainly hope you’ve enjoyed it.

My home studio looks out on the Milwaukee River, which is ever changing. The river floods often, which can be a little unnerving; but mostly fascinating. These paintings represent my visceral response to seasons, weather conditions, and floods I have observed over the past year.
