Ted Apel's Potential Difference (detail)
At New American Art Union, curator TJ Norris offers invisible.other a subtle group show about subtleties that will probably be squished somewhat at the official opening tonight. Most of the work has a controlled whiteness or transparency about it that requires a calm quiet environment. Tighter and more curatorially controlled than most recent group shows in Portland city limits, it showcases the idea of liminality more than the various participants who are: Ted Apel, Daniel Barron, Richard Chartier
(2002 Whitney Biennial), (PORT's own) Melia Donovan, Leif Elggren, Ty Ennis
, Thomas Koner, Michael Paulus, Susan Robb, Steve Roden, Abi Spring and my favorite in this show, Laura Vandenburgh. Her work takes on a lot more intimacy without frames.
