MIGUEL MARTINEZ-RIDDLE: EL ARBOR, COLOR Y LA PUERTA
In his work, Miguel Martinez-Riddle uses pictorial space for creating intricate color relationships to describe transformational moments. His personal visual language combines intuitive and calculated ways of painting.
“El Arbol, Color y la Puerta” means The Tree, Color and the Door. This title is a reflection on The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, connecting to the forest, visual experience (painting) and transformation.

LOGIC AND STRUCTURE
A group show: Beth Caspar, Robert James, and Wanda Kossak. The works from the show result from a logical analysis of a formal structure with two unary relations. Each work consists of 16 variations corresponding to the maximal number of Boolean combinations of two sets of elements with two distinct visual properties. Each contains elements having only one of the properties, elements with two properties, and some elements with none of the properties.

LAURA SUE KING: HOLDING COLOR
Laura Sue King has been making abstract geometric paintings for 20 years, continually inventing new ways of approaching the medium. In addition to painting on conventional supports like wood and canvas, King also paints in site-specific outdoor locations. In her recent series called “House Paintings,” King painted directly on abandoned bungalows that are scattered up the mountain behind her house in Fleischmanns. These paintings are gestures that King makes to draw the viewer’s attention to objects and places that might otherwise be overlooked.
The show includes acrylic paintings on wood and canvas, etchings, digital prints, and site-specific wall paintings.

TONY JANNETTI: BUNDLES
Tony Jannetti’s installation kept changing in response to the season’s change. Both, computer generated drawings and bundles of twigs functioned as line drawings. They were abstract and realistic at the same time, blurring the difference between the two approaches.
