Saints, sinners, paint
• SWEET SPOT
What makes Laurel Sparks's paintings so delicious is her exuberant embrace of decadence. The Jamaica Plain artist's February exhibit "Pleasure Dome" at Howard Yezerski Gallery began with doodles of chandeliers and then slathered on top silver enamel, glitter, and acrylic paint in confectionery pinks and blues. It's a seductive, sugary neo-rococo abstraction in which more is more.
