Nell Warren: Manifest

RICHARD SPEER
Tuesday June 24
PDX Contemporary Art
925 NW Flanders St.
 
In a satisfyingly varied show, artist Nell Warren offers up a mélange of small-, medium- and large-scale paintings. One of the larger works, Upcountry, incorporates acrylic paint, watercolor, pastels, and marble dust into a masterful suggestion of water and clouds. But it’s Warren’s small works that leave the biggest impression. At only 5.5 by 9 inches, they’re installed in a grid of 294 paintings, collectively titled Consequential Artifact. Warren’s extraordinary economy of gesture combines evocative brushstrokes, vivid color and intriguing surface effects. Never wanting to waste paint, she sometimes sprinkles the works with crumbled remnants of paint that dried overnight on her palette. There are even more small drawings mounted on two rusted metal columns hanging from the ceiling. This sculptural element not only effectively showcases the paintings, it also invigorates the show spatially. Through June 28.
