Wood, visual puns and manipulated self-images are among the motifs of “Academy 2013,” Connersmith’s 13th annual survey of work by recent area art-school graduates. Jason Edward Tucker presents a “self-portrait” that’s his own weight in branches, bundled together and painted gold, as well as a photographic portrait with an obliterated face. Jeremiah Holland’s “Wall Table #2” is a wooden slice of horizontal mountaintop, mounted on curved legs. Pat McGowan makes large, spidery wooden forms, only to cover them in asphalt or shards of battered traffic cones. Perhaps a self-portrait, Steven Skowron’s “The Divine Within” is a black-and-white double exposure of a face and a cross that resembles a still from a German expressionist film."
