Jacques Flechemuller: Dance With Ingres

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday October 26
PDX Contemporary Art
925 NW Flanders St.
 
The understated wit of Jacques Flechemuller’s drawings flows from the sheer absurdity of their imagery and titles. There’s a picture called Darwin that shows a chimpanzee reading a Christian Bible. In another, a dog wears a cone collar that’s emblazoned with the words “God Is Invincible.” Huh? Then there’s a knight in armor; in one hand he holds a heraldic banner, in the other a shield. In place of a family crest, the shield bears the word “Mayonnaise.” Somewhere between Mad magazine and Cheech and Chong, this show is probably best viewed while slightly high. Through Nov. 2.
