Get close to William Daniels' small oil paintings at Marc Foxx Gallery and you'll see how layers of color have been scraped away, leaving buoyant, mishmashed patterns as backdrops for infrastructure that looks like it's built of foil and cellophane. The effect is so engrossing, you don't really notice you're in front of a painting.

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Oct. 8. Continues through Nov. 12, 2011
