Storm Tharp: Hercules

Recommended

PDX Contemporary Art (map) Northwest
Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. and Thu., June 3, 6-8 p.m. Continues through June 26 2010

Inspired by painter Agnes Martin's minimalist "grace and confidence in not knowing," while also considering Gibraltar's mountainous Pillars of Hercules (mythologically considered a symbol of perfection, a place with nothing beyond it), Storm Tharp's Hercules delves into the perception of points impassable—those that are unavailable for philosophical improvement. "Vreeland" is two monochromatic panels placed side by side, coated in slightly different shades of very light lavender. Next to the darker panel, the lighter appears white; though without the lighter panel, the darker could also (presumably) pass as colorless. While Hercules functions to identify and reveal the harmonious relationships between objects, those objects are often very different, representing many approaches to art and at varying degrees of refinement.
