ROUGH TRADE by Houston based artist Chicagokim focuses on found objects as fragments from architectures' past, elevating these materials out the ordinary. 
 Growing up in an architectural mecca, this series of works gives a nod to Chicagokim's fascination with architecture. While some pieces are traditionally framed, others float with rough edges, rough cuts, gritty surfaces, admitting imperfection and asking the collector to expand their ideas about art, design and an artists place in architecture.
 These ideas are reinforced in her brand of greeting cards and casual wear bags, marketed as Transporting Devices.
