Eva Speer: Alone Together

RICHARD SPEER
Monday September 09
Charles A. Hartman
134 NW 8th Ave.
 
In past shows, Eva Speer (no relation to Richard Speer) painted seascapes interrupted by flashes of pure abstraction. In the current exhibition, Alone Together, she tries her hand at minimalism, playing swirly passages of house paint against industrial materials such as cast resin and Plexiglas. The tactic sometimes seems mannered, as in the red-and-white Game #4, but can also shine with winning elan, as in More or Less (Proof). The latter work is a rectangular plastic box shot through with a matrix of holes; the interior of the wall sculpture is filled with the round plastic tags left over from the holes being drilled in the first place. In its Op-inspired eye-bogglery, it recalls screen-covered paintings by the late Roy Lichtenstein. While the current body of work lacks the human warmth of Speer’s previous series, it shows her actively engaging with a new vocabulary of materials in an ever-broadening aesthetic exploration. Through Sept. 28.
