Patrick Wilson: Steak Night & Michael Reafsnyder: Sunday Best
January 11 through February 22, 2014
6006 Washington Boulevard, Culver City, CA 90232
Patrick Wilson’s show “Steak Night” includes geometric acrylic paintings that sometimes create the illusion of depth and sometimes have thin layers of solid color laminated onto the canvas, so certain shapes actually do protrude. Wilson’s paintings work best when they’re big. As usual, Michael Reafsnyder’s paintings, installed in Vielmetter’s back two galleries, smile at you — smiley faces are inserted into his paint-heavy, buoyant acrylic-covered canvases.
