Christopher Knight reviews the exhibition Tony de los Reyes: rio grande/rio bravo at Angles Gallery, Los Angeles, on view through February 22, 2014.

Knight writes that "for the last two years, Tony de los Reyes has been developing a quirky group of abstractions with exactly that distinctive -- and distinctly political -- edge. Color and line articulating space on canvas bumps up against their contentious counterpart in the North American landscape... A meandering line divides each canvas into upper and lower zones, and the stained color shifts from one zone to the other... De los Reyes’ liquid paint plays on the river’s fluidity, while his soft, blurred colors are like raking light moving across a desert plain... De los Reyes collides organic movement with the precision of the surveyor’s compass, creating a path of visual tension."
