Alexi Worth, Head and Shoulders, 2006

Artist Alexi Worth was born and raised in New York City. He attended Yale College (BA 1986) and Boston University (MFA 1993). He has exhibited with, among others, the Elizabeth Harris, Bill Maynes and DC Moore galleries; received awards from the Tiffany Foundation and the New England Foundation for the Arts; and is currently represented by DC Moore. In addition to his painting, Worth has written about art for The New Yorker, Artforum, Art in America, ARTnews, Slate, and other magazines. He is currently a Senior Critic at the University of Pennsylvania 's Graduate Program in Fine Art.

"Painted with sensuous neatness in a nicely simplifying representational style, Alexi Worth's pictures present curious visual puzzles slyly charged with sexual undercurrents."
-K. Johnson
