‘Figuring Color’ exhibit shows pigments of their imaginations
In the ICA’s sensuous antidote to winter, four artists have made works that suggest the human touch
“Figuring Color,’’ which includes 28 works by the brilliant New York-based ceramicist Kathy Butterly, was organized by the ICA’s Jenelle Porter. It features four artists - two women, two men; three in their 40s or 50s. (The fourth, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, died, aged 38, in 1996). Bright and lively, it’s a perfect winter show for the ICA, and a sop for those seeking relief from the varieties of conceptual minimalism that tend to hold court there.
