If you’re in the mood for a good painting show, go see Zach Harris’ Requiem Reversals at Max Protetch. Harris makes hallucinatory and psychedelic landscapes that have references as varied as medieval amulets, spiritual Buddhist imagery, Constructivism, Impressionism, and Abstract Expressionism. Each painting is encapsulated by a delicate, carefully crafted wood frame, each its own complete world.
Also check out my fellow Tyler alum, Marlo Pascual at the Swiss Institute. Pascual creates fragmentary still lifes from found vintage photographs and props such as cacti, an old lamp, a wooden beam that are simultaneously nostalgic and creepy.
