Jaq Chartier: Ultra Marine

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday May 11
Elizabeth Leach Gallery
417 NW 9th Ave.
 
Fuchsia blobs slowly morph before a fuzzy white background in Jaq Chartier’s transfixing video installation in the exhibition Ultra Marine. Known for her stain-based paintings, Chartier deploys her signature motifs to depict sea creatures in this show. Particularly revelatory are her works on paper, many of which have glittery surfaces that evoke the phenomenon of bioluminescence. The works on panel are most effective when, as in Floaters, the gestures are big and bold. The fact that Chartier has adapted her essentially abstract style so seamlessly to representational imagery shows just how versatile her technique has become. Through June 1.
