Park Life: Rachel Budde - Hagazussa.
Comment by AB: The works in this show are unified by the appearance, in various forms, of a strange frog-like creature. I don't think I can convey the essence of it all any more bewilderingly than the show's statement... "Hedge, hex and hag all have their roots in the Germanic word hagazussa. Hagazussa implies a certain malevolent/benevolent magic on the boundary where the wild and the cultivated meet. This edge is illuminated by her work, embodied in her trickster goddesses manifesting in various forms from medicinal weeds, to potholes to windows into the void. Working with weeds as a manifestation of her trickster force, these self-seeding, medicinal herbs thrive in our urban environments, often harboring medicinal properties which address common ailments in urban environments. She imagines the weeds fertility coming from an insatiable sexual appetite. Through her own visual mythology, she presents the trickster Goddess, ever straddling the cleaved boundaries that betray the illusion of our binary world." Well-painted work; check it out.

Guerrero Gallery: Adam Feibelman - Do With Me What You Will; William Emmert - A Lot Of People Do This.
Comment by AB: In the main gallery, Adam Feibelman works wonders with stencils, both by spraying them into paintings and also sewing them into layered dimensional collages. In the project space, William Emmert's installation looks like life's detritus, but if you take a closer look, you'll see that every single piece in the show is actually a handmade hand-painted sculpture. Manifestations of everyday humdrum objects in trompe l'oeil. Good shows-- both of 'em. Go see.
