Through Feb. 28.
The Brooklyn-based photographer’s vivid new photograms seem equally inspired by the children’s toy Colorforms and by color-field painting Nielsen uses transparent gels to overlap and juxtapose shapes against dark backgrounds; each of the images is unique. At times, the sprightly compositions suggest landscapes, totems, or flags—like the scenery of sophisticated cartoons. In one, big swatches of magenta, pink, purple, and sky blue combine so happily they could dispel any glum mood.
