Perfect traces Spencer Sweeney’s robust practice over the last few years, bringing together his psychologically rich figurative paintings and works on paper. The exhibition includes the artist’s large-scale variations on the nude in repose as well as a series of portraits that create a humorous and self-deprecating tableau of interior fantasies, insecurities, musings, and struggles involved in the creative process. Additional galleries feature announcement paintings centered around events, parties, and concerts that Sweeney helped organize as a vital presence in New York City’s nightlife and music scene.
