Vertical Neck, Michelle Lopez, Simon Preston Gallery

Materials defy expectations in the Brooklyn sculptor’s handsome second show. Molded pieces of plywood, covered on one side with black tape suggest oversize skateboards, ready to wilt like the clock in Dali’s Persistence of Memory. In a barely-there wall work, a series of slim resin strands coated in sparkling car paint appear slippery rather than stiff. Sly sculptural references loom. Battered and folded aluminum panels lean on the wall, simultaneously channeling Serra, McCracken and Chamberlain.
