Orion Martin & Alexandra Noel at POTTS

November 4, 2019 • 8:00 am - November 11, 2019 PST

On view: September 29–November 17, 2019

Typically when you see an art show, there is a press release to offer you guidance towards how to interpret the work in front of you. But at Bolthole, a two person show at POTTS gallery in Alhambra, only a stream-of-conscious poem of uncanny words and phrases is offered: “Bolthole…Flung Toast…Crass Map…Carnage and Cards…Grease Trap…” Painted on oddly shaped panels, Orion Martin’s paintings, although hyperrealistic, leave room for interpretation—in one, titled Listening Purse, delicate lines swirl around a purse clasp and handle. Alexandra Noel’s small scale paintings and mixed media sculptures are equally opaque at times, playing with architectural references that together with Martin’s works create a fantastical sort of dream space that the mind can drift freely through.
