David Pagel reviews the exhibition of paintings by Hayal Pozanti at Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects, on view through December 21, 2013.
Pagel writes that Pozanti's paintings "resemble the impossible offspring of doodles and diagrammatic drawings of machine parts. The combination is felicitous. It links the no-nonsense functionalism of precisely designed prototypes to the whimsy of what people used to do with ballpoint pens and scraps of paper when we had time to kill. Art, Pozanti’s mid-size acrylics on panel suggest, satisfies desires we didn’t know we had until they are revealed to us by the works themselves."
