A System to Communicate: Carl Hammoud at Lora Reynolds Gallery

Carl Hammoud's message is an open book. This may be unhelpful on the surface, as that book is comprised of blank pages — just as a series of labeled jars (for volatile chemicals? Scented oils? Are they filled at all?) appear without elucidating text. Yet therein lies the message: an image's power to represent reservoirs of information while simultaneously being that reservoir of information. His debut U.S. solo exhibition, A Zone of Reduced Complexity at Lora Reynolds Gallery in Austin, bears much to consider. — Brian Fee, Austin contributor
