THis show was a bit dull, monochromatic - muted or naturalistc palette - think of Mark TObey and Morris Graves.

Not pop.

I'm no expert but this sort of thing reminds me of Buddhism.

Also, linking artists together purely by style is problematic - some of the artists have little to do with environment or landscape.

The curator needs to think deeper and cast a wider net. But it is refreshing to see a group show that isn;t the usual suspects. And I;ve seen plenty of dumb shows by the usual suspects, so theres plenty of piss to go around.

i do like asphalt and texture though - what about a show called "Synaesthete" featuring artists with a distinct sense for texture...or sand in their pigment, at least...

for example why not curate these two togeher:

Kelly McLane


Ellen Orseck

I'm sorry that I won't be able to see this show in person. I love deep paintings that don't rely of typical day to day imagery. It's always good to see shows of my friend CJ. She's a great painter whom I always love speaking with. I'm glad people are putting together shows that try to help push people's minds, and not just try to show a bunch of fluff.
