dasha shishkin, “desaparecido,” at zach feuer gallery though june 11, 2011

playful, light-heartedly perverse, color-saturated mylar non-sensical scenes that were exactly what i wanted to lift the rain-fueled gloom.  were the paint still wet, i’d dive in and not come back.  and i’m hardly the only fan: looking at the listing just before i left, almost all had sold.  something about them is reminiscent of george grosz, and henry darger, and illustrations from a subversive children’s book. very cool.  no idea what’s happening in them, which i think is the point.
