Joan Backes, Paper House, at Yellow Peril Gallery

Few pleasures in life rival that of the paper shredder. Whether destroying decade old utility bills or abandoned story drafts, the paper shredder allows you to make funfetti out of the most burdensome documents. Paper, like wood, comes from trees, and Joan Backes loves trees. Her shredded paper house resembles a tiny museum, with clinically lit windows highlighting fossilized bark and jars full of acorns. The gallery’s second room features a variety of house frames along with some intricate bark paintings.
