Flourishing gallery thrives in an urban wasteland. – The Scene
Colorado Avenue is an odd hodgepodge of industrial and business spaces, from corporate record label offices to titanium suppliers and sheet rock outlets. The Christopher Grimes Gallery is tucked into a strip of offices. A fairly standard gallery space (a large room, a smaller one plus reception and a back office, white walls, diffused light), it is home to some very distinctive contemporary artists.

The Goods
The artists represented by Christopher Grimes produce idiosyncratic works--two in particular set the tone for the gallery. Composed from layers of alkyds (a type of fast drying oil paint) Sharon Ellis's bright, luminous landscapes are fanciful, while Roxy Paine specializes in more conceptual works. His alluring sculptures often resemble liquids and viscous substances frozen in motion, and many are produced by Seussian machines he creates, suggesting that the role of the artist in contemporary society is nothing more than a automaton mass-producing art for the masses.
