When I Wanted Everything: New Work by Alex Sewell
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
TOTAH Gallery on the Lower East Side presents When I Wanted Everything, an exhibition of new works by Alex Sewell, opening October 24th, from 6-8pm, on view through December 18th.
The images populating Alex Sewell’s paintings archive an ongoing dialectic between the artist’s personal memory and the collective identity of the American psyche. A restive sense of melancholy threads through each work on exhibit using a disarmingly personable tone. Sewell meticulously destabilizes all-too-familiar vistas of American suburbia, imposing a translucent scrim of violence onto objects ordinarily earmarked for passive consumption. Video games, television, toys of every kind become eerily macabre, giving the lie to the placid everydayness of his themes.
Venue: TOTAH Gallery
