This event has ended.

The Marianne Boesky Gallery presents Jesse Chapman's first solo exhibition of paintings in New York City.
Jesse Chapman's paintings are formally rigorous and reticent. Although rich with narrative potential, they withhold access. Chapman's art stands in the tradition of pitura-metaphysica, where meaning is implied but never explicitly stated. The cryptic logic that shapes these paintings, derived from their intentional structure and methodical facture, ricochets between apparently disconnected series: figures enacting ill-defined rituals, portraits, interiors, landscapes, instruments, details. Only slowly does the connectedness of the motifs insinuate itself. But when this happens, and Chapman's work and world cohere, viewers find themselves in a compelling place where omnifarious latency is subsumed by an unforeseen unity.
