Los Angeles

Group Show

Paul Plummer Gallery

Featuring the work of Harumi Tanaguchi, Joe Barrett, Geno Pettit, Ray Barro, Guy Maccoy, Dean Bloodgood, Peter Krohn, Don Totten, Bob Brawley and Robert Donley, this large, not particularly distinguished group exhibition is made up mostly of mediocre works except for Brawley’s evocative cubist landscape, Barrett’s murky graphic figures, and Bloodgood’s View from the Back Door, the latter being an outstanding painting on any terms. Using the subtle street colors of late afternoon, Bloodgood depicts a cloudy sky of warm greys filtering down onto a sharp, deep urban scene in violent perspective. It has the solitude of Beckmann written poetically into its marrow.
