ORR & KRACHEY on HUFFINGTON POST

NEO-MINIMALISM @ MARTY WALKER GALLERY AMONG "THIS WEEK'S TOP EXHIBITIONS"


"Stripped: Neo-Minimal Strategies in Contemporary Art assembles an array of talent and diverse media that handily evinces new terrain, even if it's all rather cerebral. This is art not 'of' things but 'about' them, a Fantasyland for thinking people. Two pieces are especially worthy of attention. One is Four Corners by Anna Krachey... a luridly brilliant abstract photograph... the second is Tom Orr's Flow... elegant and eloquent sculpture..." Patricia Mora


images: (top) Krachey's Four Corners, archival inkjet print, 31 x 41 in. edition of 5 (bottom) Orr's Flow , aluminum rods, wood, laminate, 59 x 26 x 16 in. *contact gallery for information & available work

JAY SHINN FEATURED REVIEWS

The Houston Chronicle reviews Refuge, Jay Shinn's solo exhibition at Barbara Davis Gallery in Houston:
"The work's real power lies in the way it transforms the gallery into a serene, chapellike setting. The exhibition's title, Refuge, hints at a spiritual impulse behind the work, as does the interdependency between the objects and their setting, neither of which is complete without the other.

It all adds up to a less-is-more vision that draws on the legacy of minimalism but ultimately feels more generous than austere. But you need to experience the work in person to glean its impact." ~Douglas Britt

And in The Houston Press, "This kind of artful, elegantly restrained work is rare and welcome" writes Kelly Klaasmeyer, editor of Glasstire.com
