> DESCRIPTION

PAPERAZZI, which runs from now until February 12th, features a wide range of artists all offering works on paper.  With that general theme providing what appears to be the only direction for the show, the pieces exhibited a dramatic range of styles. Weaving through a dense and lively opening night crowd, a few of these pieces caught my eye.  The first, Peter Fox's Untitled, used both the interwoven yet unmixed colors and thick textures of acrylic paint to create a piece whose abstraction extends both across and out from the board.  Caroline McAuliffe used paper in a much different way with The Script Series, a collection of cards made from rougher stock featuring short messages stitched in red thread that speak to the doubt and insecurity of interpersonal relationships.  I couldn't decide whether Eric Holzman's Sunrise seemed to me more of a landscape or starscape; his style packs a great deal of emotion into a very few colors spread across unclear forms, and the title implies a little of both.  In addition to the described, there are at over one hundred more pieces to explore.
