For "Polaroid Black," its current group show, Big Pictures Los Angeles painted a wall black and then hung dark paintings across it, salon-style. Daniel Newman’s Clown IV (2017) is all shades of dark gray, with the exception of a somber clown's hazel eyes and big, orange, round-ish nose. Mark Thomas Gibson painted a mostly black ghost in flight. Laurie Nye’s Infinity Girls is among the few all-in-color works. In it, stylized women with flowing hair hold on to shapes and creatures, including butterflies with thick wings. A circle floating above them would pass for the moon if there weren’t so many similar circles all around. They seem to be in an environment entirely their own, which doesn’t conform to gravity.
