Constructed slowly and unfolding organically, Margaux Williamson’s paintings seem to be the result of a dialogue between order and disorder, intention and chaos. Her barely contained spaces exist between a sense of real place and an expansive, undifferentiated openness, yet fine sure footing as tangled domestic tableaux. Perspectival and temporal shifts are rendered in fluid detail, and her darkly lucious canvases find an uneasy stability in a sort of uncanny timelessness.
In Ryan and Marlene Sing the End of Poverty, the two figures stand on a stage - or is it a living room? - decked out in shades and lo-fi rocker duds. They’re surrounded by stage lights or twinkling stars, while the background is curtained by blue-white swirls of sound.
