Today The Stranger Suggests

posted by on June 12 at 12:00 PM

‘Force of Nature’ (Piles of Paint) Elise Richman is called a painter, but what she does is this: She sculpts paint into landscapes of stalactites and gives them frames. Every tiny, brightly colored peak is an accumulation of dozens of drops of paint. There’s the applying, the waiting, the meticulous repeat. Each show is hundreds and hundreds of these little rainbowy formations. They aren’t paintings, they’re devotions. (Gallery 4Culture, 101 Prefontaine Pl S, 296-8674. 8:30 amó5 pm, free.) Jen Graves

This is a great show -- you don't often see such effective and emotive use of color in paintings.

Some dot landscapes make me think of candy! Some make me think of alpine wilderness. Some make me think of spacemen and spacewomen.
