It’s last call for Pools of Fir, Caitlin MacBride’s strong solo exhibit at GRIN. The Brooklyn painter (and RISD grad) leafs through museum collections in search of artifacts, then removes context until we’re left with just a turquoise comb, a medieval halberd, or some patterns for shirt cuffs placed against solid backgrounds. “I’m interested in painting as an archeological site for moments of longing,” she says in the artist statement. “By cropping and reframing moments I decide where the moment of desire exists.”
