McWilliams 4Shoots and Ladders” is a stunning new show of paintings by Irish artist Simon McWilliams at Skotia Gallery in Culver City. It’s by far the most impressive show I’ve seen in a long time, and the painter’s bold, expressive use of color is the main reason why. The paintings have the dreamlike echoes of Peter Doig – one of my favorite artists – and the careful use of complimentary colors in many of the pieces makes the work really come alive and create an (un)reality all its own . I highly recommend that you check out this show in person if you can – it ends on June 16. Skotia Gallery: 6144 Washington Blvd/Culver City, CA 90232
