Figuratively Provincetown

LaMontagne Gallery

Reviewed by Franklin Einspruch

Romolo Del Deo, a sculptor who splits his time between Provincetown and Pietrasanta, has curated an exhibition at LaMontagne of figurative artists connected with the former. This could be a museum show, and in fact a catalogue would have been interesting document to assemble. Some of the lore I know. Jim Peters, whose Red in Paris (2011) exudes his signature erotic doom, has a longtime connection to the Fine Arts Work Center. Paul Resika has for many years been a part-time resident of the Cape, and Nude and Sail (2007) puts a kind of geometric abstraction together from two archetypal Cape subjects.

How does Alan Feltus fit into this though? But indeed, it's enough to know that he does somehow, and The Red Jacket (2008), in all its Pieroesque delicacy, owes a debt to Provincetown that would be worth studying further. Erika Wastrom, a Barnstable artist to whose work I'm happy to be introduced, contributes a sexy figure who seems to be packing up from a day at the beach, painted with watercolor charm and Cubist funkiness. This exhibition provides both art to enjoy and dots to connect.
