Holiday
2006-05-01

Holiday is back on holiday. Patty Martori’s ambitious project space has become a must see destination in this burgeoning burg’s “east of the BQE” neighborhood. Anderson’s debut exhibition of works on paper fits right in with the local tendencies of obsessively conceived and executed drawing. Though spare and restrained, these works carry a naive elegance that might obscure their formal compositional qualities, like a Tourette’s version of Haiku poetry. Images of eyes, mouths, clouds or waves, fashioned from repeated patterns of twitchy lines or staccato strokes, juxtapose saturated colors against gently tinted grounds. Look deep within their apparent simplicity, and you might distinguish the resonance of the decorative appeal of Persian miniatures, Tantric diagrams, or the Outsider art works of Martin Ramirez.
