Austin: Between dips at Barton Springs and Deep Eddy in the next week, try to stop downtown to take in Bing Wright’s first show at Lora Reynolds Gallery. The New York-based artist’s photographic abstractions are in a smaller room there, but each image is commanding at nearly six feet tall. Between the gossamer of cracked mirrors, we can read the echoes of thatched tree branches and puddles of color from a sunset. Fractured landscapes rise to the surface in the canopy of the sky. Wright shows us that with two clichés — mirrors and sunsets — he can make something fresh. This time there’s only enough space for four of his pieces, but I’d guess that next time we’ll get a fuller show of what he’s capable of.
Through July 15, 2017 at Lora Reynolds Gallery, Austin
