James Kalm visits the recent exhibition John Wesley: Alice's Floor: Repetition and Absence at Fredericks & Freiser, New York.

Kalm notes: "Using a very limited palette of blues, pinks and grays Wesley has fashioned a world of erotic understatement and comic narrative. 'Alice's Floor' which is composed of works produced between 1977 and 1990, displays Wesley's engagement with several contemporaneous movements that include Pattern & Decorative as well as New Image."
