This exhibition's three artists blur the boundaries between figuration and abstraction in thrilling new ways. Ann Tarantino's performative "breath portraits" involve the artist blowing ink through a straw and embellishing the blobs with paint, resulting in creeping, plantlike forms; Christian Rieben's large-scale paintings suggest mysterious psychological landscapes with a wicked sense of humor (one piece in particular, Ass-Fixated, looks like a giant, blooming mum, but the title suggests other possible interpretations); and Dominick Garritano's bombastic, lushly brushed painting resembles a series of small, mosaic-like collages of geometric shapes and playful, vivid color.
