In artist Ryan Scully's Water Rushing Through Forms, a soft, round, bulbous form floats in a turgid sea, a weighty lump that's set off by a small protuberance, seemingly reaching out to OK, it's pretty much a boob. Creating flesh colored, humanlike blobs that hint at buttocks, torsos, feet, and hands is Scully's thing, and he places his objects in mad, colorful oceans that recall Japanese woodblock prints. His work shows up in the appropriately titled group exhibit "Fertile Ground," which also features the delicate juxtapositions of William Crump, who places beautifully rendered male athletes engaged in traditional sports (football, track and field) against traditionally feminine backgrounds like floral wallpaper. Sarah Sohn and Julia Marchand also contribute.
