I Never Complained About the Past: New Work/New Year

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday January 16
PDX Contemporary Art
925 NW Flanders St.
 
Storm Tharp treats us to a Cubist-inflected gouache-on-paper painting, Tronie of a Man Who Looked Like His Parents. Although it’s highly stylized, the piece is somehow less mannered than Tharp’s previous figurative work. He includes fastidious details, such as highly textural crisscrossing lines, which contrast against the swaths of flat paint surrounding them. Also of note is Joe Rudko’s Object Drawing series, which incorporates nifty trompe l’oeil effects. You look at the drawings’ different components and would swear they’re collaged, but in fact they’re drawn. How’d he do that? Simple: His technique kicks ass. Through Feb. 1.
