Artist Kristen Schiele Goes Night Swimming

Kristen Schiele's spooky playground, part painting, part collage, is reminiscent of M. Night Shyamalan's 2006 thriller, Lady in the Water — in which a pasty woman called a "narf" emerges from Paul Giamatti's pool on a mission to save the world (or something) — except better, thankfully, in every conceivable way. Schiele's exhibition is at Sloan Fine Art Gallery through April 12. —Emma Pearse
