    What a pair of shows from Yancey Richardson last October 23rd featuring Bryan Graf for Prismatic Tracks and the Sixteen Collages of Mary Lum. The premise of both shows share a commonality in the premium of image impression. AF came to bounced back and forth on the two gallery rooms. Graf explores the prismatic color realm of his photograms that employ light, mesh screen and photosensitive paper. The final outcome is basically a more than happy accident that produced images of such astounding beauty that is haunted and ethereal. Lum creates her collage inspired by wandering the streets of major cities like Paris, London, Berlin and New York. Her own exploration of the urban landscapes gave us slivers of geometric abstraction, space perspective and the richness of color fields. Each made a distinct impression that was uniquely bold, focused and giving the eyes a fantastic feast. For these two shows, one word best directs on how to enjoy them: INDULGE.
