Art In America

John Houck

at On Stellar Rays,
1 Rivington St.

Everything about John Houck's show—from the title, "A History of Graph Paper," to the items (protractors, crisply folded paper, small boxes, etc.) depicted in his color photographs—points to the artist's background in architecture. The images look like digital manipulations, but in fact the objects were photographed one or a few at a time, then the images were layered on top of each other and re-shot, creating a mystifying tension between flatness and depth.
