Certain paintings in Christopher Orr’s show at Ibid., "The Inmost Light," recall scenes from HBO’s The Leftovers. The world might be ending, and a lot of ad-hoc religious ceremony seems to be going on. Some paintings also recall thrift-store finds, half-finished scenes made with grimy colors but endearing all the same. In one painting three figures, all waist-deep in water, stand in a circle holding hands as massive leaves arc over them. Sketch marks in the greenish-yellow background give this painting its half-finished feel. A rock — a meteor? — nearly hits the dirt ground of a vaguely defined landscape in Untitled (Why Are We Sleeping).
