Leif Kath

Oh, those melancholy Danes.  Despite the truly awful title, 2D or Not 2D: Danish Artists Flirt With Space (at the UCMO Gallery of Art & Design) is actually one of the better shows in the area right now.  These are mostly smallish, shy paintings; some a little obtuse, some a little too pleasing.  A little too warm, a little too cool, yes, but never lukewarm.  It’s all balance.  The real discovery for me has been Leif Kath, a mid career academic just starting to show in the US.  Kath’s thin, soft paintings wear Formalism lightly.  It’s a slightly-complex-board-game-you-play-with-your-family-on-the-day-after-Christmas formalism.  Nothing Puritanical.  Possibly transcendent nonetheless.
