Parallel Lines of Second Sight, a rainbow-mandala, doily thing, is one of the more complicated works of art you will lay eyes on this season. Embedded in a paper surface, telling a coded but coherent story, are pennies minted in the birth years of everyone in Twitchell's immediate family, as well as portraits of Ronald and Nancy Reagan, stamps depicting Jackson Pollock, and Reno casinos. Twitchell's show feels sketchy. Maybe he needs to explore materials or to work in three dimensions. But his diligence and insane inclination for cryptic narrative could yield gems. Except for Sachs, each of these guys goes beyond Guy Art, explodes clichés, adjusts perimeters, gets around boyishness, and alludes to something bigger and less limiting.
