Unsweet candy.
Intertwining postapocalyptic narratives and prelapsarian bliss infuse Olive Ayhens’s fantastical, almost panoramic paintings. In saturated cake-frosting and nail-polish colors, we see upheaving cities, superhighways, and bestiaries in her collapsing, corkscrewing space. Part Bosch, part Coney Island of the mind’s eye, these works place us inside scenes of destruction as curious gods look into and down on widening worlds. Really trippy. —Jerry Saltz
