Paul Behnke photo blogs a visit to Sideshow Gallery to see new paintings by Richard Timperio.

Behnke writes that Timperio's new work "imparts a Matisse-ian revelry in color but the way the paint is applied belies an attitude more akin to Paul Klee's idea of serious play. While it's apparent that Timperio does enjoy his work, the viewer can't help but be struck buy the craftsmanship and improvisational puzzle solving that inform the artist's decisions. The subtle and bold applications of paint combine with offbeat color choices in each piece to produce a profoundly playful new body of work."
