Robin Miller reviews the recent exhibition Jennifer Omaitz: Above Ground, Beneath the Surface at 1point618 Gallery, Cleveland.

Miller writes that Omaitz's "work contains layers, not only in the literal sense but also in the many ideas behind it. She works with ideas from the histories of abstraction, architecture, landscapes, natural disasters and tactical responses to painting. The accumulation of layers creates a strong architectural sense of depth. Previous sculptural work captured these ideas of depth and color relation. In this return to painting, she flawlessly combines these ideas in a two-dimensional form."
