Look twice or you’ll miss the point. I believe one of my art professors gave that pearl of wisdom when it comes to viewing work at a gallery or museum. In the world of Abstract painting, you might have to look more than twice to get a formative sense but at least look twice is the minimum. AF came to a group show last June 19th and yes we had to look more than twice. Second Sight featured the paintings of Sean Greene, Matt Phillips, and Russell Tyler. All the works reverberated with geometric centric subjects, color blocks, irregular lines, gradations, punctuations, and theory-laden subtexts. The beauty of abstract work is that it gives viewers the freedom to veer off in their own direction or sensibility while studying the oeuvre. Nothing is wrong or right. As clearly demonstrated by the trio that their work deserved a second look or another way of seeing it as the nature of this genre mitigates that act. Well as they say, “Love is sweeter the second time around.” – the same thing goes for art.
