'Very Providencey'

SEE, NOW Posters by Nichols.

Jenny Nichols offers knockout psychedelic screenprints — many of them are concert posters. A flock of owls faces off against a swarm of military helicopters above the slogan “2007 There Comes a Time.” A decapitated tiger head with a laser eye promotes an AS220 show. A flying owl clutches a bleeding horse head. Nichols’s purples, reds, and greens glow against deep blacks.

David Udris’s abstract color field images look like scribbles or rubbings, but are actually photos of shadows or frost on windows that he’s mutated by running them through Photoshop over and over and over. This doesn’t do a lot for me, but you might sense a seeking for chromatic transcendence within the static of the machine.
