Los Angeles

Helen Breger

Paul Rivas Gallery

Dry wit and massed areas of black and white characterize the etchings of Helen Breger in her first one-man show in Los Angeles. She received her art training in Vienna, her birth-place, and studied graphics with John Ihle at San Francisco State College. The over-all pulse of the exhibition is pretty pedestrian treatments of possibly recognizable subjects that are well-drawn, using aquatints and etched line skillfully. Unfortunately, the prints really do nothing that Edvard Munch and Jacques Tati haven’t already done better.
