Paul Missal, Steve Tilden, Chris Knutson

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday February 21
Blackfish Gallery
420 NW 9th Ave.
 
A mixed bag from Blackfish this month. Paul Missal’s and Steve Tilden’s collaborative Bird Suite—wall-mounted foam birds hanging from steel branches—is large, aggressively hackneyed and truly “for the birds.” Anything this bad should have the good sense not to be this big. Tilden’s waxy, earth-toned sculptures, however, exude a quaint, antiquarian charm. The most satisfying works, though, are Chris Knutson’s photographs in the very back of the space. They juxtapose ebullient imagery from carnival parades with elegantly melancholy studies of rusted factory buildings. Closes March 2.
