Is it possible the holidays are finally over? Or worse, that the long nights of winter are now here? It used to be that the six weeks between New Year’s Day and Presidents Day were a dark lonely period of reflection and hibernation. Now, they’re an arts extravaganza, if not on par with the summer, then at least more accessible to the natives.
“Law & Order,” a show in its last week at Harper’s Books in East Hampton, is perfectly appropriate for the milieu. Brad Phillips, a Canadian artist, makes visual art often using text as subject matter, and not just any text but deeply evocative, assertive, assaulting, and sometimes disturbing text.
