Where to buy...Mernet Larsen

A select exhibition in a private gallery

Mernet Larsen sees things geometrically. For decades, the 72-year-old painter has been working toward a visual style that makes wry use of blocky, simplified human figures. Drawing on influences as varied as Renaissance painting, architectural rendering, and Japanese puppet theater, Larsen’s latest series presents a world where her primitive figures sit in conference-room meetings, delight over a newborn, and re-enact Bible scenes. The images sometimes appear to be stills from some sort of Cubist video game, but they evoke a surprising range of human emotion, including pity and dread. At Vogt Gallery, 508 W. 26th St., New York, (212) 255-2671. Prices range from $6,000 to $25,000.
