I've had Sarah Chilton bookmarked for months but never got around to writing about her work because, frankly, my mind comes to a complete blank when I look at her rings. It's not that I don't think they're awesome (they "clearly" are, har har). I gaze at those frozen figures and my own brain starts to feel like it's frozen in resin. I think it's that penguin he has some kind of hypnotic effect on me, floating there in suspended animation, all tiny-like. Check out her "Little Chicago" gallery to view the rings as worn by beer-drinking men and other Chicagoans.
