Lacey Lewis: Repression and Revelation

Lacey Lewis eschews fancy aesthetic theories for flesh-and-blood humanity and symbolism that doesn'’t require a philosophical middleman. The female body is Lewis'’ favorite subject matter, and this exhibition collects several of her oil paintings and monochromes, most of which stand on their own as perceptive character studies of individual women (the most striking being "“Judith With the Head of Holofernes"”). Lewis'’ figures deal as much with the outer form of the person as with her subjective inner life. For the viewer, her work becomes something like a mirror. Through Nov. 25 at the Pi Gallery, 419 E. 18th St.
