Betty Merken: Gravity and Whispers

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday July 19
Laura Russo Gallery
805 NW 21st Ave.
 
Seattle-based painter and printmaker Betty Merken has a gift for abstract compositions that counterpose geometric and organic forms. The perfection of her geometries serves as a potent foil for the intuitive drips, stains and washes that appear throughout her oil paintings and works on paper. In this body of work, Merken’s color palette tends toward saturated hues, as in the monotype Structure, Pink, and the deep blues of Notte and Lapis. July 3-Aug. 2.
