Young Israeli painter Doron Langberg, one of three artists in this group show, adds new meaning the phrase “hands on.” In Face Smear, 2012, he literally uses his hands while at the same time depicting them in a sensuously choreographed mass of ochre and fuchsia oil paint. A sense of personal intimacy with the sitter extends to the viewer as we find ourselves lured into an erotic game. ANNA SHUKEYLO

On view through May 4.
