LA-based painter Adam Beris arrived in his light-bathed studio recently to find that an unknown intruder had been there before him and left in haste. A quick forensic investigation found a series of small non-human footprints meandering across a freshly painted canvas, trailing select hues and even sampling a bit of the color with particular attention paid to the verdant greens and earth tones, which are favored by the artist. And though this unknown collaborative transgressor was rarely heard from again, much of the artist’s latest body of work was done with the nagging mystery of the culprit’s identity still at large, resulting in the playful title for his new solo show, Rat Trap, at Guerrero Gallery.
