Alexandria Tarver "New Paintings"
February 15, 2015
Deli Gallery is pleased to announce its inaugural exhibition, Apartment Series, presenting three consecutive one-person shows by artists Michael Bussell, Alexandria Tarver and Alex Chinh Nguyen.
The second installment, New Paintings, features a group of new small-scale works by Alexandria Tarver. The series, made within the past year and never before exhibited as a complete group, consists entirely of achromatic oil paintings depicting cut flowers. By tirelessly revisiting the same imagery, Tarver brings out the unique qualities of each object, conveying a deep sense of clarity and perception. The flowers are the central figures within an open space grounded only by the repeated image of a table’s corner. Silent and exacting, the still lifes demonstrate an intellectually rigorous approach of translating quick sketches into intensely labored paintings.
