Bad @ SportsCenter kicks back this week with Chicago painter, Susanne Doremus, for a delightful exchange over her current show at Devening Projects, Cabinet:1. In her newest exhibition, Doremus has drawn down the emblematic grand scale of her paintings, inaugurating new spaces for her visual lexicon of calligraphic line and exposed revisions.
