Exhibiting in the Frable gallery is Artspace member Chris Semtner. Somewhere Else, his latest group of acrylic paintings of interiors, is a continuation of a series which began when he realized that what can be painted or seen could never compete with what is left to the imagination. Semtner’s paintings turned away from the depiction of scenes or events to the suggestions of the moment before or after an event. Drama was no longer represented but implied. Whatever action is taking place is happening somewhere else, just out of view. The ideal subject for such paintings became the darkened interiors of old homes because Semtner could depict the windows, doors, and staircases which all lead to somewhere else while leaving that unseen other place up to the viewer’s imagination.
