Chop chop, get to work. Chop chop, make some art. For many talented artists “chop chop” is both an internal mantra and an incessant external fact. Moreover it describes the way in which art is often made, in chops: a second stolen during a commute, an inspiration set in motion at an inopportune moment captured as note to self in one’s sketchbook. Beginning Final Friday, February 24th, Wonder Fair presents Chop Chop, an exhibition of momentary pauses in modern man’s hectic schedule. The show pairs former Wonder-Fairian Lee Piechocki with Kansas City Art Institute grad Matt Jacobs. Art brothers from different art mothers, their work is united by an obvious delight in materials and pop- toned banality. As if they shopped for art imagery from the same neon-colored aisle at the dollar store, Jacobs’ sculptures juxtapose bright pool floats and rainbow-hued household cleaning supplies, while Piechocki’s imaginary interiors are filled with beach balls, kitsch dolphin posters, and stray fluorescent marks. Chop Chop promises to be a bright spot in the deep of winter-- so Chop chop, go to the Wonder Fair!

Chop Chop opens February 24, 2012 and runs until March 25th.
