Barry Pelzner returns to Froelick Gallery with (Ir)regular, his latest collection of monochromatic paintings. Working within the self-imposed limitations of black gouache on white paper, he delves into illusory pattern-making. Expected symmetry is defied by placing these compositions just out of center within his margins. Infinitely repeating beyond the picture plane, Pelzner's shape montages exist in a territory between the academically graphic and the playfully handmade- wry visual non-sequiturs and eyeball-challenging formal shifts make for an intriguing tug-of-war between negative and positive space. This imposed sense of movement , "to combat the inherent stasis of still images", is made apparent in titles such as Devolve, Confluence, Concentrate, Weave, Switcheroo. Pelzner's orchestrations also extend to the temporal, as elements of these pieces have a sense of both coming together and apart, a simultaneous passage and reclamation of time.
