The New Baroque

West Hollywood's Gallery 825 invited nearby gallerist and colleague Martha Otero to jury its florid spring group show this year - and found no media left behind. The resulting bounty of painting, sculpture, photography and their many cousins, "The New Baroque," explores the ornamental style's content, narrative and legacy, with expressions of modern-day mixed-media maximalism that signal an enduring love for embellishment, even in today's hyperfast world. At the same time, the gallery presents three small but salient solo installations by members Keiko Inoh, Robert Nelson and Osceola Refetoff. Inoh's unique 3-D light projection shadow-puppet cities, Nelson's advanced classical draftsmanship applied to subversive subjects, and Refetoff's complex constructed images of memory and decay of the wild Wild West (or at least our idea of it) together form a poetically and psychically aligned counterpart to the optical cornucopia tumbling through the main gallery.
