Allie Buck, aka “Gato” creates an odd little world. In it, tiny people with giraffe necks peer from the frame. A man takes a lobster for a walk. A woman contemplates a freckle. These bright, almost childlike paintings with a sophisticated sensibility are painted on dresser drawers, two by fours and other found objects. Gato’s work intrigues and confuses, leaving the viewer wanting to know more.
