The web can't do justice to the ICA's new exhibit of work by Charline von Heyl, with just a standard news release and perfunctory online slideshow. In fact, the contrast between that virtual flatness and how von Heyl's work looks in person is a testament to her skill. Pieces on display through July 15 are variously huge, almost microscopically intricate, and somehow seem brighter than possible. As my friend Liz Colburn-Moraites wrote after visiting this week, "This exhibit is absolutely fantastic, she breaks the bounds of painting. Slides of her work do not do them justice. You must give her work time to draw you in and then it engulfs you." - CO
