Art In America

Richard Kalina

at Lennon, Weinberg,
514 W. 25 St.

Experience pays off—again—in Richard Kalina's 23rd solo exhibition, his 10th at this gallery. The paintings and watercolors are energized by scattered dots, some of them vaguely targetlike, connected by lines that deftly subdivide the pictorial field. The result: A subtle push-pull in perceptual space that evokes the kind of cognitive complexity inherent in today's highly networked urban life. Leave it to this artist—who is also a professor, book author and critic—to capture that glorious, electron-swift muddle.
