In a thrilling debut at DC Moore gallery, Brooklyn-based artist Michael Stamm investigates the emotional inner life via the bottled-up and buttoned-down outer shell. Stamm’s confident figurative style triggers a dusky melancholic psychology by persuasively employing pensive, somber colors and incredibly detailed imagery. A series of torsos depict sessions with Stamm’s therapist where sweaters and vests are opened to reveal complicated internal turmoil. Other works promise happiness in a bottle and serve as a quiet reproach of an accelerating wellness cult and an ever-increasing pressure towards physical and emotional self-actualization. At DC Moore through February 3.
