Judy Cooke: Subtext

RICHARD SPEER
Thursday February 21
Elizabeth Leach Gallery
417 NW 9th Ave.
 
Judy Cooke goes for and achieves “amateur chic” in her oil, pencil and wax works on wood panel. Her sloppy grids and awkward forms display a cloying self-awareness of the sort that emerges dually from untrained street artists and Master of Fine Arts degree holders. The best piece in the show is Corner, a suavely gorgeous birch panel adorned with diagonal and vertical lines that recall constructivist masters. It should also be noted that any good-quality birch panel without anything on it at all, is quite handsome in its own right.Through March 2.
