Garden of Earthly Delights

Mythology, fables, and a fantastical world. Those are the images that artist Judith Linhares' paintings conjure. On view at Edward Thorp Gallery, Linhares's 12 or so paintings employ bold, wide brushstrokes with vibrant and lush colors. Based on this show, which is called "Rowing to Eden," it seems that Linhares should be hot, hot, hot. Her work reminds me of the paintings of Dana Schutz, who is an up-and-comer. Linhares, who was born in 1940, may not be classified as a hipster, but her work can definitely compete with those of the young'uns. (Images via Edward Thorp gallery)
