Gary Boswell

RICHARD SPEER
Wednesday April 23
Nine Gallery
122 NW 8th Ave.
 
Gary Boswell’s Chimera series of photo collages offer a case study in why collages are so often trite. He puts together cut-out flowers, birds and figures in compositions that are arbitrary and facile. Happily, his series of automatic (meaning "from the unconscious") paintings, Becoming Visible, offers considerably more interest. The black-and-white images are most compelling, with seeping, dripping contours that activate the viewer’s imagination. They seem to be channeling Asian landscape painting, with forms suggestive of mountains, cliffs and valleys. Through April 27.
