Takashi Kunitani’s Pink Objects, on view at Ulterior Gallery, invites viewers literally to look at the world from a new perspective – his neon works, lying facedown on glass shelves, are viewable only from crouching below the level of the works. This method offers a unique viewing experience, as well as a tie-in to the pornographic origins of the phrases utilized in the work.

J. B. Murray’s Visions from the Sun at Shrine highlights the late Outsider artist’s spiritual works – strikingly accessible abstract drawings, the product of what Murray believed to be divinely-inspired hallucinations.

Rounding out the group is Denise Treizman’s installation at M E N Gallery, a large tapestry incorporating fragments of objects, which playfully fills that space in the spirit of a monumental painterly gesture.
