Putting earth in a box so it can break out again
There's an awful story in art-world lore about the marriage of Ana Mendieta, the elegant earth artist, and Carl Andre, the clean-edged minimalist. She fell from a window one night, possibly pushed by him, and didn't survive. Sometimes this seems like a metaphor for how their sensibilities were too violently divergent to be together. But I've always wondered what would have happened if her organic forms had merged with his raw wood and steel ones. Could it have been beautiful? Eben Goff's wall sculptures at Diane Rosenstein, all carefully crafted out of wood, aluminum, wax and brass, feel like offspring of a minimalism-earth art marriage. And they are beautiful, arcs interrupting angles and wax settling around aluminum slides. 831 N. Highland Ave.; through April 13. (323) 397-9225, dianerosenstein.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: March 16. Continues through April 13, 2013
