Jenniffer Omaitz reviews paintings by Andrea Joki recently on view at William Busta Gallery, Cleveland, Ohio.

Omaitz writes: "The new paintings in Joki’s ongoing series of work evoke a simultaneous effect of close and far, like a sun-induced mirage. They appear as compressed yet densely layered paintings up close, and from a distance of 10 to15 feet away, they appear as a series of marks, notes, or elements dancing."
