Winston Chmielinski’s first solo exhibition in New York, Ecstatic Skin, opened last week at Envoy Enterprises. And it's already receiving positive reviews for the 24-year-old gay artist.

As he explains about his work: "I make faces and figures which saturate the self-portrait beyond anatomical finality, as literalness can be morbid: tracing contours is like charting the dead, and I cringe at this causation -- of the unrest of ghosts. In two dimensions the premises of aliveness are restaged, whereupon muscular interplay infers, or even overrides, the dimensional body's vascular system; my upturning of anatomy has manifested thus in painterly spontaneity and exactitude."
