Tomoe Taniguchi: Stunning Beauty

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday June 20
Compound Gallery
107 NW 5th Ave.
 
For an immersion in pure cheese, it’s hard to beat Tomoe Taniguchi’s new show, Stunning Beauty, at Compound. Frothy mixed-media paintings such as A Dragonfly and Water Play and Wrapped in a Vision feature anime-inflected sprites, all doe-eyed and demure, fingers tapering delicately, flowers floating in their hair. The artist renders these visions in a dreamy, watercolor-washy style that feels as buoyant and vacuous as a nitrous-oxide high. It’s all so very pretty, so hokey, so terribly, deliciously saccharine—perfect to hang in your guest bathroom, laundry room, shed or any other grim space in dire need of levity. Through June 30.
