Adam Sorensen: The Optimist

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday March 28
PDX Contemporary Art
925 NW Flanders St.
 
It’s a cool coincidence that Adam Sorensen’s show, The Optimist, opened the same week as Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful. Sorensen’s sweeping, candy-colored vistas bear a striking resemblance to the fantastical landscapes of the film and its famous 1939 predecessor. Sorensen has been painting these inspired views for many years, and this outing he is in his finest form ever. Across the exhibition, paintings of all sizes—from the modest Prehistoric series on paper, to medium-size works like Baby in the Corner, to the 7-foot-tall The Optimist—are consistent in quality, packing maximum visual punch per square inch. Through March 30.
