The Wheeler School’s Chazan Gallery has a very good group show going right now, with work by B.L. Green, Jessica Deane Rosner and Lynne Tobin. Tobin’s vertical line studies were made by dipping ropes and strings in ink, then laying them flat on the surface of the paper. The results look something like abstracted birch forests, except when they spill down in a pile on the gallery floor; I like them. Rosner’s compulsive grids [pictured] are each bisected: one side drawn with a ruler and a compass, and the other drawn freehand. There’s a self-critical struggle to maintain an artificially constructed order that can never be perfect, as in her drawing of 874 circles. “There should have been another row at the bottom,” it says in the corner, a disappointing grade from her own grouchy inner teacher.
