HYPER/HYPO: PORTRAIT OF ARTISTS AS FREE-RANGE CHILDREN. It's All About Things, 9 N. Pearl St., Suite 204H, Port Chester. Sat., May 9-June 13. Opening reception Sat., May 9, 4-7 p.m. These works invite you to experience the pure presence of a thing directly in space and, more intimately, the pleasure of letting your mind roam free without interruption for an indeterminate amount of time, maybe until the sun sets and the street lamps go on or the cows come home. Geoffrey Todd Smith's works evoke an abstract simulation, like a game of strategy or a snapshot of contagion. Matt Irie pushes you back into and out of this world with abstractions that are both analytic and metaphysical. Rob de Oude zooms out, or maybe way in, to show the Moiré patterns, created by layers of lines forming signals to noise and back into tune. Robert Otto Epstein revels in the same repetitions and chance synchronicities as the other artists in the show but drops, or inerts, a vital keyframe, an instant of staccato cosmic, sawtooth noise. Bjorn Meyer-Abrecht's sculpture materializes the pattern, reconstituted as if it were imperfectly sent through a transporter, with a fly in the ointment. Gallery is open Saturdays 1-6 p.m., including opening day, and by appointment: luismaldonadoart@yahoo.com or 914/589-6965.
