Lauren Yoho - Two Sisters Trading Co. - June 30, 2004 - 3 stars

Yoho creates well-versed abstractions with color and compositional balance that keep the eye happy and in motion. There is no illusion of depth and no trace of reality to decipher in her larger works composed of mostly like-sized chunky color blocks that neatly appear to interlock with each other in Abstract Expressionist fashion. The cool color palette enhances the tactile look and appealing visual sensations. "Birds," a series of four small paintings, are exceptional little pieces. The birds, made with one dab of the brush, are ocher toned against hot orange surrounded by a two-toned taupe and deep plum sky. Simple and elegant, this is artwork that artists can appreciate for the technical command of materials, the unique vision and her understanding for the substance of color. This is yet another discerning fine art show from this humble little Broad Ripple shop. Through July 8, 2004; 317-255-0027. –Mary Lee Pappas
