Alexi Worth (Senior Critic) Exhibiting at DC Moore Gallery, Chelsea, NYC

DC Moore Gallery is pleased to present Alexi Worth's most recent paintings in our project space. Show of Hands is a group of nearly monochromatic up-close images that revisit the artist's earlier themes in a new, distinctively reinvented pictorial language. Abandoning oil paint in favor of sprayed pigment, Worth has created an idiom of stenciled, layered shapes where the effects of frontal lighting are exaggerated and transformed. Reminiscent at times of photo-collage, 3-D animation, and cartooning, the new images are literally drawn from everyday life: people smoking, drinking, stacking fruit or crushing paper. From these modest situations, Worth makes images that are at once graphic and intricate, antipainterly but insistently handmade
