Jane Dickson: Flickering Purgatories

Image coming soon.

David Brody reviews the recent exhibition Jane Dickson: Eat Slots, Play Free at Valentine Gallery.

Brody writes that "Dickson's steady, sober vision strips the distracting fluff away down to architectural bones that show casinos to be a kind of peopled re-enactment of 20th century abstraction at its most positivist –– from Kandinsky to Frank Stella to Richard Anuszkiewicz –– and maybe all the more despairing for that… But it is Georges Seurat's melting conté crayon studies and his Pointillist artifice that now resonate most deeply in Dickson’s erosion of contour, her sensual treatment of auras of light that simplify figures almost to the point of cartoons, yet short of bruising their essential dignity."

James Kalm also filmed a video visit to the exhibition.
