Mario Naves reviews the exhibition Andrew Lenaghan: Recent Paintings at George Adams Gallery, New York, on view through February 18, 2012.

Naves writest that "Lenaghan has long been drawn to areas of Brooklyn that, when not mundane, are distinctly unlovely - a graffiti-laden building in Greenpoint, anonymous industrial structures in Williamsburg and the stained and mottled roadway bordering the Bedford Avenue Armory. Family is also a mainstay - in one painting, children watch Dora the Explorer; in another, a woman stands by the mirror in an unkempt bedroom."
