Alex Steckly: Entitlement

RICHARD SPEER
Wednesday March 20
Nationale
3360 SE Division St.
 
It’s worth noting that Alex Steckly’s new show is called Entitlement. There was undoubtedly a whiff of entitlement emanating from the painter back in 2009 when, at the age of 23, he had his first solo show ever at Fourteen30 Contemporary. Steckly had the kind of cocky brashness that wunderkinds are supposed to have. But now, four years later, and after a recent car accident that left him with broken ribs and a punctured lung, he’s just happy to be here. In keeping with this, his new paintings have an earnest, workmanlike quality informed by hours of perfectionist toiling in the studio. In a series of understated but charismatic minimalist works, Steckly proves he has the chops to evolve his style over time like the proverbial fine wine. Through March 24.
