Jordan Amirkhani reviews Mary Addison Hackett: A Tin of Egyptian Cigarettes at Marcia Wood Gallery, Atlanta, on view through February 6, 2016.

Amirkhani observes: "While the studio paintings lend the exhibition an important theme, it is Hackett’s dialogue with painting itself that provides the coherent pulse. Whether a studio scene or a vibrant explosion of color, the paintings in this exhibition point to the shared intensities of labor, time-based processes of making, and the artist’s intimate engagement with materials that all paintings demand."
