Sam Messer has language on his mind. His paintings arrest the ambiance of contemporary life as if it were a lyrical turn of phrase, each canvas saturated with the vernacular of the space within which it is made. Much like Morandi with his vases, or Manet with his flowers, Messer is possessed by a fascination with seriality and repetition, a small cast of subjects and objects populating the bulk of his works.
On view now until February 26 2022 on M+B’s online gallery here.
