Known among the Houston art community as one of its most talented painters, Seth Alverson always piques interest when he unveils a new series of works. The subject matter is sometimes disturbing, sometimes grotesque, and even sometimes banal, but the paintings always display a high level of technique and skill.

In this video, Alverson talks about the process and inspiration behind his first solo exhibition since 2011. The new paintings, seven in total, are on view through October 4 at Hello Project Gallery.
