On Screen/Off Screen: Kate Petley, Lorraine Tady, & Liz Trosper at Barry Whistler

Nominally this is a show of abstract paintings, but the three artists — Kate Petley, Lorraine Tady, and Liz Trosper — seem to be striving to make non-abstractions and non-paintings. A stretched canvas is, of course, a convention, like a stage set. A hundred years ago it was seen as a window; increasingly it’s a metaphor for a screen because that’s what most people look at all day. In the show the artists silently debate, through their painted proxies, how much to reveal of the guts and wiring of this perceptual frame.

Even the avant-garde sounds of St. Vincent and the weirdo rock of Tripping Daisy and the Polyphonic Spree possess a flair for theatrics. Great Big Wild Oak, the understated but excellent debut album out this week from 26-year-old Alex Montenegro, a.k.a. Skirts, bucks this trend.
