Michael Knutson: Layered Ovoid Lattices

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday November 22
Blackfish Gallery
420 NW 9th Ave.
 
Layered Ovoid Lattices is a ludicrously, comically dry title for this intensely felt, radically colorful show. Knutson’s geometric abstractions are made up of small, overlapping shapes that fan out extravagantly, like peacock feathers. At times candy-colored, jewel-toned in other passages, they emit a flat appearance from afar but luscious, creamy impasto up close. With its chromatic and textural overload, this opulent dessert of an exhibition proves the old Mae West adage: “Too much of a good thing is wonderful.” Through Dec. 1.
