D.E. May: Memory of Line�Grids, Templates, Miniatures

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday September 19
PDX Contemporary Art
925 NW Flanders St.
 
D.E. May’s work doesn’t try to look polished or immaculate. In toned-paper grids and small chunks of graphite, ink, acrylic and plaster of Paris, he aims for and achieves an aesthetic of affectless dinginess. Viewers who appreciate intentionally drab and abstruse artwork will enjoy May’s efforts; those who don’t will probably find it the most bloodless, boring show they’ve seen in Portland this year. Through Sept. 28.
