On show at Mott Projects Still Alive is a solo exhibition by David Hanes, featuring a body of work created specifically for this show, these paintings signal a turn away from Hanes’s critical, conceptual and minimal art-making and point toward a new practice that is grounded in method, technique and study. The title Still Alive emerged from conversations Hanes had with John Vincent Campbell on the CKTH.com podcast, and embodies where he is at in painting, self-leadership and his voice as a creator.

Based on pastel drawings done during Hanes’s travels, these paintings purposely present themselves as blocky or roughly resolved in order to convey the energy and aurora Hanes experienced while creating them. His emphasis on the philosophy of painting, the living of it, becomes in itself a process of acceptance, and his work is transformed into not just a passing experience but an account of living in a body and a world that is ever-changing.
