Like  watching people dancing through an open window _ they seem a little mad at first until you realize they hear the song that you are watching.

What is it about the paintings of Alex Kanevsky that rivets our attention?  In part, it is because Kanevsky really knows how to paint.  He executes his work with almost brash confidence.  To view his paintings in the present coolly conceptual, yet politically charged, art environment stressing ideas over execution is like the relief of taking a cool drink of water in a parched desert.
