Rocky Mountain News Review / Press

Mary Chandler of the Rocky Mountain News wrote a review of the show I have with Mark Sink yesterday, saying:

"Finally, in the far back space, Rule has moved into the realm of quasi-photography, with a shift into anti-photography, in a way. "Still," a selection of acrylic-on-panel paintings by Colorado-based artist Nathan Abels, includes some of the highly representational works he does of the contemporary landscape and its built features.

But there also are grayed- or browned-out scenes - View From a Train is the major example - that add a component of abstraction to a body of work by a young artist who has an eye for where and how we live and how we perceive our surroundings.

It adds to the mystery of what, in essence, is a trip through time and the evolution of technology, and vision."
