“Da Capo,” now on view at Churner and Churner, artist Elise Adibi explores small-scale repetition on 6′ by 6′ canvases, and the result is anything but tedious. Adibi minutely traces a pattern that follows the weave of the canvas with graphite or charcoal, but not until after having covered the canvas in a delicate gold or copper. Line after line, she reiterates the pattern like the chorus of a song—indeed, “da capo” is a musical term meaning “from the beginning,” or “repeat.” The artist makes herself known in the occasional smudges and streaks that arise as a result of her gliding her hand across the canvas to the next line, and these lovely imperfections give off the almost surreal impression of a sort of giant blurred square of fabric. This textile impression is reinforced by the thick graphite-powder impasto that nearly begs to be touched. I imagined a sort of metal frosting. (I really wanted to touch it.) “Da Capo,” Elise Adibi, May 24 – June 30, Churner & Churner, New York.
