Mary Josephson: Character

RICHARD SPEER
Friday April 04
Laura Russo Gallery
805 NW 21st Ave.
 
Viewers familiar with Mary Josephson’s oil paintings in the style of eccentric figuration will be surprised at the new medium she’s debuting in her April show, Character. She’s combining watercolors, recycled printer’s felt, and embroidery, and the results are weirdly beautiful. These works are much less pictorially dense than her oil paintings, making inventive use of negative space. There’s a connect-the-dots feel as the embroidery thread weaves above and below the picture plane. This is a novel effect, but more importantly, it’s an effect that works graphically. Kudos to this established Northwest artist for adding a new arrow to her stylistic quiver. April 3-26.
