Tad Savinar: I Wonder

RICHARD SPEER
Friday November 29
PDX Contemporary Art
925 NW Flanders St.
 
A lot of creative work these days passes for “eco-art,” but Tad Savinar has happened onto a potent symbol for environmental awareness in his latest show, I Wonder. In a bronze sculpture rather unimaginatively titled Sustainability, he shows a miniature tree growing out of a spoon. He repeats this motif in a series of digital prints in silver-and-black and in tomato-and-caramel. The image seems to connote a spoon meting out a measure of “green” awareness: not too much, not too little, just enough to effect a modicum of convenient change. Somehow the universality of the image and its symbolism counteracts its preciousness, leaving the viewer with a caloric smidgen of food for thought. Through Nov. 30.
