Ted McCann: Green Illume

RICHARD SPEER
Friday April 11
Hap Gallery
916 NW Flanders St.
 
It’s worth noting that Ted McCann has a masters-of-fine-arts degree from Yale University and a day job in the construction business. You can see those dueling influences in his wall sculptures on display at Hap. They’re gritty and organic, made of oddly shaped pieces of flotsam found along beaches, yet they’re pieced together into highly sophisticated compositions that have a structural, architectonic integrity. The links between blue-collar realities and the blue-blooded hauteur of contemporary art come together fetchingly in this show, Green Illume, which is a military term for a night illuminated by full moon. Indeed, in works like Adrift, there is a pale green-blue color reminiscent of gentle moonlight. This soothing chromaticism contrasts dramatically with the work Aramid, an etude in bright mustard and sunflower yellows. This is a thoroughly satisfying show, the latest in an impressive run of exhibitions at this gallery, which, although only 5 months old, has the curatorial polish of a long-established venue. Through April 26.
