Morphology and the Biomorphic Impulse

When: Feb. 9-March 9 2016

With lush forms abstracted from a fantasy called the natural world, the biomorphic style naturally flourished in the angular, industrial twentieth century. You can see it in the tree-like columns of a Gaudí church, the smooth skin of a Brancusi bronze, or the voluptuous fluids in an Yves Tanguy painting. Three FRANK artists revisit the terrain in this show, where Bill McAllister’s photo of a human body turns into a wooden whiplash in Mark Elliott’s sculpture and then shatters into colored panels in Harriett Bellows’s painting. —Brian Howe
