I was horrified to discover this weekend that very few people know about my in-print review of Michi and Dosa Kim's show at Beep Beep Gallery.
So, yes, the review does exist. Clicking on this excerpt will take you to the full text:
Compare that to Change Come, one of the other big paintings. Here, the two artists achieve a much more eloquent synthesis. Although it competes with the outrageous appeal of Stay Cool Br’er, this particular image—with its snarling hulk-of-a-rabbit and his stylish rooster companion—was probably the biggest visual success of the show. Br’er Rabbit is rendered in an opaque, greenish-black, applied distinctly by Kim. But what could have been solid areas of paint are reduced in size, strategically, leaving only these slashing tendrils of tar. The remedy allows you to see Michi’s abstract colors and patterns through the veins of Kim’s monster.I checked at Eyedrum this weekend, and I'm sure there are 11 or 12 remaining copies of FALSE.
Beep Beep Gallery was kind enough to display the article on their back wall. There, my writing now rubs shoulders with that of our dear Jerry Cullum and Felicia Feaster (formerly of CL).
