“Since the idea was minted, minimalism in art has never fully gone out of vogue—there’s just something compelling about doing more with less. But there’s also something vital about doing more with more, and that’s where the local artist known as Psychoflauge steps in. Collages from the Lacunae, his new exhibit at The Carrack, is a hyper-colored sensory overload of imagery that represents both the history of psychedelic art and the cut-and-paste sensibility of modernity. Indeed, this is a show that comes with a content warning for photosensitive visitors—a show that pushes through the cerebral and into the visceral.” - Brian Howe, Indy Week
