Tony Berlant Summons the Ethereal in Abstract Works
|Some Other Place|
But then Berlant throws a curveball: an eight-foot-tall collage, Tigertail, that's devoid of obvious imagery and as chalky as the outside of the Taj Mahal. At $85,000, Tigertail is at the high end of Berlant's oeuvre, though its value can't be measured in dollars and cents but in the way it exemplifies that otherworldliness for which he is known.
Tony Berlant's "New Works" continues through July 1 at Brian Gross Fine Art, 49 Geary (at Kearny). Admission is free.
