Danae Falliers and Willy Bo Richardson have a two-person show of recent works at Surroundings, the landscape-design firm that took over James Kelly’s excellent and hugely missed gallery in the Railyard District. The two artists offer a fine complement to each other’s lushly minimalist visions (no, that’s not an oxymoron—as you can see below). Falliers’ composite-based photography turns landscape, libraries, fabrics, and streets into rhythmic grids and dazzling sweeps of color. Richardson makes opulent, vertically striped paintings that he describes as “philosophy in motion.” In his artist’s statement, he says “I began with proportion and painted vertical lines as a measuring device. This evolved into my current practice. I did not know this would become a multi-decade body of work. I simply fell in love with something, and as it unfolded it touched me on more profound levels.” This small but vibrant show is well worth a visit during an indefinite run.
