Geometry, geography, and geology merge with whimsy and painterly color in Rebecca Rutstein’s latest solo exhibition at Bridgette Mayer Gallery. Her work, mostly paintings with the impressive addition of an installation in the back gallery, combines technological draftsmanship and, at times, cloying sentimentality–the unlikely pairing results in pleasing, universal works that speak abstractly of the structures which make up our world.
