Kris Hargis' exhibit "Vale la Pena" is reviewed by Willamette Week's Richard Speer

Richard Speer writes:

"...the real revelations in Hargis’ latest outing are his haunting floral still lifes: desiccated irises and hydrangeas whose petals stretch out like impossibly delicate fingers, reaching for rain that will not fall. In their virtuosic detail, they impress the eye and guide the allusion-seeking brain to the ache of yearning and disappointment. These are tiny masterpieces: blooms from an aesthetic development that took nearly a decade to sprout, and make for Hargis’ most affecting show to date."
