Meow Meow Wow

Towers and Portals, at Like the Spice Gallery, is Rachel Beach's second solo exhibition in New York. Beach's seductive sculpture-paintings are postmodern, playful explorations of relativistic perception. Using oil paint and a technique called veneered marquetry, the artist creates trompe-l'oeil forms that easily segue from a two-dimensional to a three-dimensional reading and likewise maneuver between ornamentation and cleverly subversive commentary. Remarkably, the works are as sincere as they are arch.

See that? We're not just making it up! Other people love Towers & Portals just as much as we do! That's a quote from the fantastic article at ArtCat which we think everyone should go read. We're very pleased to have been noticed, and we're very happy they liked us. We hope to see more of you here, ArtCat! Maybe even for the Closing Night Party on April 12th! Or what about opening night for Allison Edge: Crystal Days? That's April 18th, you know. Or what about coming to both? We're sure our art dog won't mind.
