'Yearnings for wholeness'

Work by Joel Moskowitz, in his joint show “Unspooled,’’ with Sylvia Sluis, at Fountain Street Fine Art, Boston, through June 30. The gallery says he “draws long, spiraling lines, mesmerized. He erases and revises over time, building up a shape that seems, finally, both loose and tightly wound. One end of the line typically hangs free, giving the viewer a way into the maze. Ink grows dense and looping like script. He blends minimalism and expressionism with a metallic sheen. His work, says Moskowitz, ‘is influenced by religious icons, yearnings for wholeness.”’
