Lee Kelly: Atacama

RICHARD SPEER
Tuesday December 11
Elizabeth Leach Gallery
417 NW 9th Ave.
 
Veteran sculptor Lee Kelly is at the top of his form in Atacama, a suite of wall-mounted and freestanding sculptures of welded steel and gold leaf. With their elegant, biomorphic forms, the pieces exude a calligraphic elegance. Atacama I recalls the contours of Japanese pagodas, while the buoyant Atacama III looks like a jauntily abstracted dog. A freestanding piece called Pumalin is the exhibition’s strongest; in fact, that it’s on a pedestal instead of on the wall is an important part of its appeal. Works this intricate benefit from being viewed in the round—it seems a shame to hide their backsides from view by hanging them on the wall. Through Dec. 29.
