Daniel Zeller’s (2008) Photo: Courtesy of Pierogi Brooklyn

If you look hard enough into Daniel Zeller's knotty, tangly paper drawings, up at Pierogi Brooklyn through May 19 (take in a double show there this weekend!), you might see your apartment's stoop with a barky dog tethered to it. Or a lion napping in an African desert. Or an abandoned car in suburban Detroit. Or perhaps just a series of colorful blobs and swirls that are equally fascinating, if not more so. —Emma Pearse
