Mindgames II : Dublin 2007, The Paul Kane Gallery
Chris Doris's Mindagames II features works in two radically different idioms, one a group of spare minimally articulated abstracts, the other a series of photographic collage and briush drawings.
The former are slow and meditative, the latter fast, impassioned and expressive. Both are good and, intriguingly, given that the different kinds of work are intermingled throughout, the show as a whole works very well something that is all the more striking given that the biggest piece, a composite grid of uniformly painted squares, is one of a kind in the context of everything else.
