Isaac Layman: Funeral

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday August 01
Elizabeth Leach Gallery
417 NW 9th Ave.
 
Large in scale, fastidious in execution, Isaac Layman’s photographic prints glorify the banal. In the past, his images of ice trays, clothes dryers, ovens and hot-dog wrappers have made mountains out of molehills, elevating quotidian objects to objects of veneration. Although a cool minimalism suffuses his work, it is more Pop Art than minimalist. Like Warhol with his soup cans, Layman believes that anything, no matter how humble its station, can become the stuff of glamor and import, if only it is presented as such. Aug. 1-Sept. 21.
