At Tobey C. Moss Gallery, "Spatial Concerns" is a satisfying retrospective of Jules Engel's paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures, books and animated films, although it retraces territory that was previously covered in a 1992 Engel exhibition at the gallery. Nevertheless, the show provides an invaluable opportunity to view six decades' worth of work by a pioneering animation artist and abstractionist. Engel looms large in the world of experimental animation.

Abstract artist and filmmaker Jules Engel has been the director of CalArts' experimental animation program for more than 20 years. When he teaches, he tells students not to be afraid to play while they create. "You must do art with some kind of joy," even if the subject of the piece is serious, he said. "I enjoy doing art. It relaxes me." Engel's recent sculpture and painting at Tobey C. Moss Gallery reflect his delight in the process.
