Ty Ennis: JKJKJK

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday April 25
Nationale
3360 SE Division St.
 
Anyone who saw Ty Ennis’ You’ll Love It Here in 2009 at the now-defunct New American Art Union isn't likely to forget that show’s creepy documentation of Spokane serial killer Robert Lee Yates. Ennis’ new show at Nationale takes a major stylistic turn, with paintings in a lowbrow style depicting still lifes of incongruous objects. Still Life With Weapons, for example, incorporates a zebra-striped cowboy hat, a honeycomb-patterned minimalist painting, a bouquet of flowers, and a porn DVD titled Weapons of Ass Destruction. The self-conscious awkwardness of the rendering gives the show an endearing snarkiness. Through April 28.
