If there is a neo-reductivist revolution afoot in painting, Linda Daniels could be its Robespierre, so ruthlessly doctrinaire do her oil in linen squares seem. (A. M. Richards, 328 Berry Street, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn, (917) 570-1476, through May 24- tomorrow.) But it has been so long since we’ve experienced painting as a site with ground rules that her strict discipline feels like a longed for release. Restraint is sexy here, with vibrant springtime color and geometric patterning that is decidedly floral, but cut with dangerously sharp blades.
