Karla Wozniak's paintings and works on paper show us the back roads and any-places of the American landscape. Here, the collision of suburban sprawl with the natural world, and the romance of the great American road trip with its shabbier realities, finds its painted equivalent. Wozniaks audacious color (from harmonic sunsets to toxic sludge and plastic) and playfully rigorous surface structures (from weighty tectonic shapes to light, transparent veils of paint) unfold with all the raucousness of a strip mall development at the edge of a national park.
