Minneapolis Startribune Interpose Abstract Art Review Mary Abbe

Minneapolis Star Tribune published my painting Tycoon and reviewed my show Interpose at Rosalux Gallery. Check out the opening reception photos.

At their best, abstract paintings follow an internal logic that’s subtly apparent in their design, colors, balance, texture and other nuances. McNulty and Wrayge are masters of that craft whose latest, large-scale (up to 6 feet wide) compositions strike a harmonious balance between structure and gesture, planning and spontaneity. Working with thin veils of oil pigment, Wrayge produces poetic canvases in moody, atmospheric shades of gray. McNulty emphasizes texture by layering on acrylic paints, scraping the surfaces, reapplying color and carving again with palette knives to reveal pentimenti and the underlying architecture of each image as in “Tycoon,” seen above.- Mary Abbe
