"New Paintings by Cagney King" visual art review 

In Cagney King's newest mixed media work, not only does she use every conceivable medium -- including a pair of jeans and concrete -- but she also includes quotes, newspaper clippings, mathematical formulas and even her own poetry. In "Molecular Thoughts," she writes out the strain energy formula as well as a poem of her own composition. In this painting/collage, your mind might feel the strain as you try to connect the dots, as it were (not that this is necessarily a bad thing). It's in the abstract landscape "Mind Clouds," which depicts a thin layer of yellow clouds sandwiched by a bleak concrete-colored (and textured) sky, where King achieves the unity that she strains toward in her text-laden work. King describes the "push and pull" of taking cement "to the limit of the medium." You wonder how many other artists are using cement as paint and, if they are, whether they're doing it half as well. Through July 31; 317-270-8258, wuglaku@netzero.net.
