Joel Shapiro: Maquettes and Multiple

RICHARD SPEER
Wednesday July 09
Elizabeth Leach Gallery
417 NW 9th Ave.
 
One of the most exuberant shows in Portland this year, Joel Shapiro’s boldly colorful prints and sculptures fill Liz Leach’s small back gallery with verve and spunk. Although the prints are made of simple, elemental forms, a closer inspection reveals many nuances. In Up Down Around (e), splatters of red surround the shapes like flecks of vital, clotting blood. The works on paper are dynamically complemented by the sculptural works, which look like stick figures climbing and dancing on the walls a la Fred Astaire in the classic film Royal Wedding. Through Aug. 2.
