Shane McAdams: Scorched Earth

RICHARD SPEER
Tuesday April 22
Elizabeth Leach Gallery
417 NW 9th Ave.
 
Talk about unconventional painting methods! Shane McAdams paints on blowtorched styrofoam, a medium that we’re pretty sure isn’t taught in most art schools. But the results are as cool as his blowtorch is hot: scarred, warped surfaces on which the Brooklyn, N.Y., artist has superimposed eerie landscapes, sprawling, bacteriumlike framing devices, and ironically cheerful rainbow stripes. The imagery is inspired by McAdams’ childhood in the American Southwest and his concerns about the environment. Scorched Earth is a wry, sly, spooky show. Through April 26.
