| Folding Mountain, Myungjin Song|
CTRL Gallery Show in Elegant, Riveting and ...Icky?
Song is working the red-green complementary colors with strangely visceral paintings. Dark-green surfaces, pinched, folded, dented or tied, read as fabric - and flesh; red blood cell-like dots are scattered and spattered across them. In other works, pinkish goo seems to ooze out from an unknown source, creating intestine-like forms. As admittedly icky as the descriptions sound, there is something elegant and riveting about the work. (Through December 23, CTRL Gallery, 3907 Main Street, 713-523-2875)
