Visionary drawings and paintings.
Peruse the amazing world of “Ancient Critters,” by too-underknown artist Olive Ayhens. Ur-Beasts is a world teeming with strange creatures in purple undergrowth, highways through crowded cityscapes, a camelid standing in the East River near the Manhattan Bridge, and much more. Here, the world swirls. The eye is overfed with wonderful color and twisting compositions to ignite in the mind. —Jerry Saltz
