Leah Ollman reviews works by Fred Reichman and Eleanor Ray at The Landing, Los Angeles, on view through July 16, 2016.
Ollman writes that Reichman's "quietly radiant paintings share much with that poetic form. Spare and reductive, they draw upon observations of the everyday, within the home and natural landscape. They are acts of reverence for precise moments in time, confluences of light, color, awareness." Ollman adds that "Ray's regard for the accoutrements and atmosphere of these gestational chambers borders on the sacred. Her work, like Reichman's, is deeply thoughtful, attentive to the beauty of the quotidian and humble, and paced to the slow reveal."
