The title Entropvisions is in homage to my mother, the poet and art critic, Harriet Zinnes. In 1990 New Directions published a collection of her poems titled Entropisms, a word she made-up combining entropy - the tendency toward disorder - and tropism - the growth towards or away from a stimulus. Similarly, my short reviews combine entropy and tropism by suggesting growth towards a vision of art from the chaos of the art world.

Barbara Laube at Gold / scopophilia
If you're able to get to Montclair, NJ, I highly recommend Barbara Laube 's exhibition at Gold / scopophilia, through March 20. I'm so glad I was able to get there! Made of fragments cut out from larger paintings, each little gem is a whole world of exploration into a history of memory and feeling of presence, of landscape, real people and imagination. Most paintings are about 6 inches, though some are diptychs or triptychs, while one wall even has paintings as small as postage stamps.
