Jamie Adams
The idealized nudity depicted in Jamie Adams’ work challenges the viewer with illusions and dreams the painter has created, but sex is not the subject here. Adams masterly renders a sly parody of our culture’s fantasies and obsessions with sex, control and turning women into market-ready images of desire. The paintings reveal an upside- down world that floors ideas and books into mere foot pedestals — attending the subject’s ennui. Statuary and fruit, even a tiny dog, are nuanced references to art history, along with the classic poses — reminders of time refusing to stop, as light dances across bodies, sheets and bedroom walls. Adrift in materiality, each subject suffers a narcissistic pain, totally alone, aware only of being noticed by the artist and the viewer, and longing for something more. Through May 17, 2014. (Philip Slein, 4735 McPherson Ave. 314-361-2617.) ---Dickson Beall
