Cat Balco reviews works by Ruth Miller and Andrew Forge at the Washington Art Association, Washington Depot, CT, on view through August 5, 2017.

Balco writes: "Like Cézanne, Miller and Forge are not interested in description, but rather revelation: of something ineffable that can only be seen through engagement with the observed world. 'You want something unknown to look back at you. It is saying it has a right to come forth, a necessity,' says Miller. This rare and precious quality—ungraspable yet powerfully real—animates the entire exhibition."
