Focal point

"SLEEPER," an aerial view of a man sleeping under a comforter detailed above, at first seems relatively straightforward. This work by NATHAN NAETZKER is a virtuoso performance in the handling of light and shadow and striking in its realism. Yet the unusual viewpoint -- reminiscent of the early work of photorealist painter Richard Estes -- finally lends it an air of unreality. You view a private moment, but only at a distance. Like other paintings in the show, it has a sense of detachment, even isolation.
