Erin Trefry, “Anatomy of Apparel (green handles),” 2017. Ceramics, purse handles, zip ties, 20 inches by 18 inches by 8 inches (Erin Trefry and Big Pictures Los Angeles) In 1976, the French cartoonist Jean Giraud (also known as Moebius) created “The Airtight Garage,” a story about a pocket universe on an asteroid in the constellation Leo. Overseen by a mad scientist with all kinds of wild ideas about creativity, the miniature multiverse was a tinkerer’s paradise, a utopian society and... [more]

      Any work of art or exhibition may be interpreted through almost any lens. It may be judged on any criteria. That being said, when I write about art I look for the work of art or the show to set some terms by which I can make judgments. I try to see an internal logic to the thing—just because a show of Color Field paintings can be discussed in terms of the social and political conditions of modern life, doesn’t mean it’s always the best way. I start looking, however conservative this... [more]

  Cue the Monty Python reel. The constant recurrence of uprooting and upheaval hit me soon after the first interval of total engrossment, quickly riven as I hit the wall placard introducing the next artist.

At first, the current group show at Marc Foxx offers little in the way of a theme or “hook.”  However, the juxtaposition of works that seem to have been randomly chosen to show together, other than the fact that they are all large-scale pieces, is ultimately rewarding rather than frustrating.  The gaps left between one artist’s work and that of another are productive in that they lead one to actually try to put the puzzle together, rather than simply “read” the show along a pre-determined...
