The off-white walls of Alice Mogabgab Gallery are adorned with canvases by three artists. Neither cluttered nor overwhelming, there are many dots and a lot of color. "Xiang Mountain II," from 2009, is a depiction of a mountainous speckled with trees in faded gray acrylic dots, so faint that you can miss it if you don't focus.Gallery owner and curator Alice Mogabgab remarks that that "Xiang Mountain II" is typically Chinese work, with the mountain depiction only taking up half the canvas, leaving the rest blank.It is only when a visitor remarked how odd it was that the painter had signed the top left of the canvas that someone realized the painting had been hung incorrectly.Leopoldine Roux's practice is quite different, basing her work on abandoned canvases upon which she's painted thousands of dots, layering the painting until the canvases acquire a sculptural quality."Dots and Pixels" is up at Alice Mogabgab Gallery through Sept. 9 .
