Mario Naves reviews the exhibition Scott Malbaurn: Lean at at Janet Kurnatowski Gallery, on view through November 13, 2011.

Naves writes: "Mining high modernism for its rigor and clarity, Malbaurn uncovers nuances of pictorial form within circumscribed parameters. Make that seemingly circumscribed: Malbaurn's recent explorations of the chevron are proof that a given motif is viable to the extent in which an artist endows it with newfound (or idiosyncratic) purpose."
