Paul Resika's "Geometry and the Sea" art exhibit is at Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects (208 Forsyth Street, Manhattan) through May 20 and Bookstein Projects (60 East 66th Street, 3rd Floor, Manhattan) through May 26.His “Moby Dick” (2017) "is the most dynamic painting. It is also the most visually complicated. A white and pink cycloid is conjoined to a pyramidal blue structure, cresting on a white and gray sea surge, suggesting the hunted whale and capsizing ship in Herman Melville’s epic. This crisply delineated, angular mayhem is counterbalanced by a calm, seamless blue sky and ocean — a blue so pervasive it swallows up a sun that is filled by blue impasto. Water here collaborates with sky to deliver ravishment from the universe’s indifference."
