Small Lies

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday June 29
Nine Gallery
122 NW 8th Ave.
 
There is something to be said for well-executed gimmickry, and that's basically what Small Lies is all about. The right halves of Sean Hardin’s wood panels are either bare wood finish or black matte, while the left sides are painted landscapes. Together, the halves seem to argue with one another in a deconstructionist dialogue: naturality versus artifice, abstraction versus representation. It’s an obvious but still potent dialectic, which Hardin carries off with aplomb. Through June 30.
