Anna Von Mertens: Above, Between and In

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday May 22
Elizabeth Leach Gallery
417 NW 9th Ave.
 

Anna Von Mertens’ works look like paintings, but they’re actually made of hand-dyed cotton. She takes her inspiration for these gorgeous, saturated compositions from three different sources: juices (as in the piece Kale, Carrot, Apple), psychic “aura readings” (Me and Chris), and the aurora borealis. With their loose, intuitive shapes and patterns, the works recall the prints and paintings of the late Helen Frankenthaler. The aura-reading pieces are presented in a split-screen format, with amorphous blobs sitting side by side. It’s a striking presentation, made even more seductive by the bold color palette. This artwork looks good enough to eat. Through May 31.
