CANT SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES

The combination of scale, color, and context make this a stunning show. It’s everything real art is supposed to be: big, colorful, expensive and hard to move around. As far as the show’s title, the work itself suffers little from an inability to back up away from itself. In this cavernous space, Ruyters pantone paintings of forest scenes pulled me in off the street and drew me to within inches of their surfaces, pleasing me constantly. If I only had a few dozen thousand extra euros, I’d send some of these back home to enjoy in San Francisco.
