The armature around which Judith Linhares builds her expressive compositions has its origin in color. Acid greens, electric yellows, and artic blues dislodged from the brain without logic or intent find a sudden purpose in hallucinatory narratives where nature, animals, and the female form languidly commune. Dramatic bands of color inject movement and energy into nonsensical scenes where women are often the sole protagonists. Occasionally, Linhares places her own spin on art historical gems such as in “High Desert”, when she awakens Rousseau’s poetic Sleeping Gypsy (1897), strips her of her clothes and dips the scene in acid. A strange scene of domesticity plays out in “Saturday Morning” (2017) where two women cheerfully work and play in front of a pyramid-like structure. These narratives neither need nor miss men. Graceful, unhurried, and utterly unrestrained, the women go about their business in a world that feels natural on their own terms. At PPOW through March 16.
