Sharon Butler blogs about Carolanna Parlato: A Delicate Balance at Elizabeth Harris Gallery, New York, on view through February 13, 2016.

Butler writes that in Parlato's new paintings "dense geometric spaces, sloppy translucency, and highly saturated color of previous work have been gently nudged aside by opaque pastel color, the introduction of modeling paste for thickness, and the airy aesthetic of 'incompleteness.'"
