Flavorpill, Some Abstraction Occurs

@ 65GRAND,  Jan 11 - Feb 9, 2008

Just when you thought painting for painting's sake had deserted our chilly city, an exhibition of painter's painters shows up at intimate gallery 65GRAND. Curator Tiffany Calvert pulls our conceptually clouded heads out of the snow with small works by four emerging abstract artists. Highlights include Pamela Jorden's Untitled oil-on-linen pieces — multi-tiered color explosions reminiscent of works by Bay Area abstractionists Richard Diebenkorn and David Park — and Wes Sherman's inscrutable silhouettes, which recall Luc Tuymans' sense of disrupted narrative. You may not know what you're looking at, but at this discombobulating exhibition, you certainly won't care.
