Opening Reception • Friday, October 24 • 6pm to 9pm

Continuing in a tradition of painting by direct observation, Alexis and Isabel attempt to reconcile paint with people. Their works, far from verbatim photorealism or single-minded caricature, are the results of translating in the midst of observing. The artists choose to paint those closest to them; face to face with their subjects, they allow the painting to unfold in real time.

“On a stage with no script what is misheard or misspoken becomes very important.”
- Alexis Graman

“Isabel is confronting [the painter’s job] honestly and squarely—the difficulty shows and it’s bound up with her humanity.”
- David Salle
