Thru Feb 23: “The Flowering of Phantoms” Anj SmithHauser & Wirth, 32 East 69th St., NYCThe eerie, luminous, compact portraits and landscapes of London-based artist Anj Smith are exercises in extravagant meticulousness. “All of the eleven paintings…  are small, but painted in intricate detail. At times Smith’s brushstrokes are scarcely detectable as hairline traces across her canvases… Further conjuring Northern Renaissance masters like Jan Van Eyck is Smith’s use of symbolism, like the skulls so often seen in devotional paintings as momento mori, or reminders of the viewer’s mortality.” - Nadiah Fellah, New American Paintings
