Josef Albers: The Interaction of Color-Formulation: Articulation

RICHARD SPEER
Tuesday January 22
Augen DeSoto
716 NW Davis St.
 

Love geometric abstraction? Run, don't walk, to this museum-quality exhibition of Josef Albers’ prints. Albers literally wrote the book on color effects (his magnum opus, 1963's Interaction of Color) and in the prints that make up Augen’s current show, the late, great abstractionist lays out all the arrows in his quiver. Squares, rhomboids and other shapes nestle within one another in chromatic combinations designed to delight and boggle the eye. An unexpected pleasure are the folded shapes in works such as Folio 2, Folder 21A, in which the minimalist master seems to channel M.C. Escher’s illusionistic pretzels. This is a well-conceived, thoughtful show with much to offer both the uninitiated and the connoisseur of Albers’ oeuvre. Through Feb. 2.
