Episode Notes

Painter and art writer Alexi Worth joined Sharon Butler to discuss “Nearness” his solo show on view at DC Moore through February 12. Using abstracted shape and simplified color, Alexi’s fleshy new paintings, made during the pandemic, suggest, among other things, an intimate meeting between two people, sipping wine from long stemmed glasses. Alexi shared a Top Ten list of shows to see in the galleries this month.
