Portland as Fuck

RICHARD SPEER
Friday February 22
Compound Gallery
107 NW 5th Ave.
 
How can you not like a show called Portland as Fuck? This group exhibition is loosely themed around the reasons we love our fair city of stumps. Fortunately, the artists didn’t take the assignment too literally; this is no Portlandia retread, but rather an essence-isolating distillation of sometimes oblique references. Among the highlights are Ryan Bubnis’ abstracted mountains and rivers; Brett Superstar’s witty wool wall sculpture of Paul Bunyan; and Timothy Karpinski’s multicolored laurel wreath. And then there is Tripper Dungan’s depiction of a beer-swilling monkey on roller skates. Viewers will scratch their heads, say “What the...?” and then smile when the light bulb turns on. Who is that beer-swilling monkey? He is not in our stars, dear Brutus, but in ourselves. Through March 3.
