Art of Music

RICHARD SPEER
Tuesday August 27
Compound Gallery
107 NW 5th Ave.
 
The highlight of this group show, Art of Music, is Joel Colley’s inventive piece Makaveli. It’s made out of painted and gilded bullet casings, arranged in the shape of late hip-hop star Tupac Shakur’s face. Elsewhere in the show, Ryan Airhart’s digital prints of well-known singers strategically leave out the subjects’ faces but include their hairstyles. That visual information alone is enough to identify the iconic stars in the pieces Bowie, Marley and Lennon. Less successful are Christopher DeGaetano’s multilayered acrylic portraits of Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix and Bob Marley. While they may be layered in their materiality, they are gimmicky and simplistic in concept. Through Aug. 31.
