Henk Pander: The Tooth of Time

RICHARD SPEER
Wednesday February 20
Laura Russo Gallery
805 NW 21st Ave.
 
Henk Pander is a venerated Northwest painter; he’s been around a long time and has work in some important collections. Unfortunately, he’s just not very good. The hokey burning ship in The Sea and the Rush album cover-worthy futurist dystopia titled Iron Fist (listed for sale at a whopping $70,000 apiece) are notable for their agreeably creamy impasto and their disagreeably cartoonish rendering. Pander does not possess the technique necessary for high realism, so he relies on the crutch of allegory. This would be a saving grace if his allegories aspired beyond the symbolism found in bad comic books. Through March 2.
