Walton Ford at Paul Kasmin

As summer dawns and we spend more time outside, it's worthwhile to reflect on our relationship with nature, which the exhibition of Walton Ford's watercolors at Paul Kasmin Gallery helps us do. The show, which runs through June 21st, features some of Ford's latest investigations of natural history, with implicit scare quotes around both words. Animals both mythic (Rhyndacus, above, and Fenrir) and real (Susie, the gorilla transported across the Atlantic on the Graf Zeppelin) dominate the vibrant canvases, their imagined musings scrawled across the margins, humans significant only in their absurdity.
