Dona Nelson at Thomas Erben Gallery
This small group show, up through February 1, of five works by four artists at the Thomas Erben Gallery is best characterized by the adage, quality over quantity. Painter’s painter Dona Nelson aggressively questions her medium’s two dimensional format by turning her painting into a sculptural installation. She sets up spatial rythms for the others in the show: Hadassah Emmerich, Chitra Ganesh and Haeri Yoo. A powerful symmetry emerges among the diverse visual perspectives and cultures unearthed by these works.
This was an artcritical PIC in December 2008.
