Michael Paglia reviews ithaca / by Monique Crine

“Crine’s photo-realist paintings, on the north wall, are all based on photos of her father taken between 1960 and 1970. They depict moments from his life in high school, in the military, and after the birth of a child. Crine’s father was very photogenic, with nearly a movie star’s level of visual charisma, as seen in “Richard 1961″ (pictured), but that’s just one reason these paintings succeed; another would be the fact that Crine is a consummate craftswoman, and the paintings are thus technically superb.”
