On 'Fresh Art' at the Karin Sanders Gallery

"Describing her pieces as 'narratives,' Ms. Ober uses lettering, paste-ons, paint and ink to create pseudo-primitive views that move from symbols of innocence to experience.
In 'I'd Rather See Your Summertime Skin,' a dictionary definition of 'pretty' is painted near a stick-figure honeymoon couple. The eye then travels down the canvas, past a blue bird (of happiness?) and a colorful cliched family beach scene, where black cursive writing scrawls out the picture title. Two smaller works from Ms. Ober's 'Meshuggeneh Series,' joyfully continue the gentle satire."
