Paul Soriano: Oblivion

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday November 02
Cock Gallery
625 NW Everett St., No. 106
 
Paul Soriano departs from his serene portraiture in a new suite of oil paintings entitled Oblivion. There’s nothing serene about these works, with their hyperkinetic undergirding of gestures, swarming underneath the paintings’ surfaces like hornets. The works’ subject matter also has a vespine sense of danger and agitation. In the imagery, Soriano confronts psychosexual demons he has never before explored in his exhibited work. The wild-haired figure in Shaman in the Twilight of his Days, the erect male nude in Lost (in the Valley of Pleasure) and the bare-assed youth confronted by clothed boys in At the Crossroad (Kill the Pig) all illuminate dark corners of the sexual psyche in a manner recalling the feverish erotic fantasias of painter Eric Fischl. Through Nov. 7.
