Introduction 'HERE COMES THE SUN: LORI ELLISON AND SHARI MENDELSON' A certain visionary fervor infuses these two artists. Repeating units are favored to excellent effect, whether the transparent circles of plastic joined into sparkling screens and nebulae in Ms. Mendelson's work, or the fine fields of geometric or organic patterns in Ms. Ellison's paintings and drawings. Ms. Ellison deftly summons a mesmerizing power that compares quite favorably to that of Agnes Martin, James Siena and aboriginal or tantric art; it suggests that she may be some kind of genius.
