Oil on masonite
20 x 16 inches
Compared to his previous New York City outing (Derek Eller Gallery, May 2007), the imagery in André Ethier's current solo show is a relative disappointment. Fortunately, there are several strong works, of which the untitled painting pictured above is the most outstanding representative. As I wrote in 2007, "at his best, [Ethier is] something of a latter-day, irreligious Blake."
