Faces, bodies, and shadowy silhouettes break through Naomi Frears’s abstract compositions. “The figure insists on appearing,” she explains, “it’s the means by which I communicate.” A heady blend of the real and the unreal, her work is by turns jarring and calming. The Beaux Arts gallery presents Frears’s latest works, which continue to transport viewers into a world that is an uncanny twin of the real. —C.J.F.
