Carolyn Cole

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday November 14
Butters
520 NW Davis St., 2nd floor
 
One of the Northwest’s best-known painters, Carolyn Cole subtly but pointedly changes her well-played tune in a suite of new acrylic and collaged paintings. A free, almost offhand use of graphite imparts a newfound sense of slapdash scrawl where before there was only glib perfection. And her use of color seems to be evolving away from the tried-and-true combinations that have made her work so imminently collectible, toward more intuitive palettes. In works such as Orange 71307 and Blue 91306, bursts of luminescence sear the eye like phosphenes, engaging the viewer’s opticality and imagination. This is Cole’s most inventive show in years. Through Nov. 30.
