Nothing nice happens to the shapes in Chris Finley’s new paintings at Jack Tilton Gallery. They crash, crunch, and crumple into each other - the transitions remind me of hitting the “tween” button when you’re working in Flash. Their size, just slightly larger than computer screens and shape, with the same aspect ratio as a monitor, underlines the impression. The look is digital, sterile, and clean - but the material is sign enamel, which gives the surfaces that matte skin look. Highly recommended.
