Carolyn Garcia, Paula Blackwell, Esteban Hermida-Espada

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday June 14
Guardino Gallery
2939 NE Alberta St.
 
Three gifted artists contribute to a slam-dunk show at Guardino. With their inspired commingling of human, plant and animal imagery, Carolyn Garcia’s acrylic and colored-pencil paintings have insouciant charm to burn. In Return to Me, she renders a starlit blue sky with a power that borders on the incantational, placing the work squarely within the tradition of magical realism. Painter Paula Blackwell excels in landscapes that seem to float in misty sfumato, lending these encaustic works a seepy, neo-Impressionist allure. Finally, Esteban Hermida-Espada’s ceramic sculptures may actually make you blush. In one multipart piece, he creates a progression of forms that suggest a clit hood being slowly peeled back. Time for a cigarette. May 29-June 24.
