There is a sense of violence in these realistic paintings of studio interiors, which comes less from their depictions of paint-splattered floors and walls than from their point of view—flush against the ceiling and wedged into the corner like a surveillance camera. Some include faint, drippy rectangles—the ghosts of small canvases primed and worked on. In one eight-foot-wide image, a piece of cheap plastic molding becomes a black chevron bisecting the two gray fields of floor and wall: the artist’s atelier reduced to color-field abstraction.

George Adams, 525 W 26th, 212-564-8480. Through August 18.
