Honor Fraser is pleased to present “BESTEST EVER!,” a solo exhibition of new paintings, sculptures, and a large-scale Cosmic Cavern by the Los Angeles-based artist, Kenny Scharf. If you missed the opening reception, be sure to visit the gallery to see this magnificent exhibition. It runs through August 20, 2022.
Remixing a cast of familiar characters, within an installation of vibrant paintings, glossy sculptures, and a gallery-sized Cosmic Cavern, Scharf’s latest solo exhibition explores the various ways we relate to conflict, chaos, and to one another. His nested figures squeeze, bend, and contort into shapes that at once conform to and warp the figures around them. Gestural ribbons of spray paint fall off slick picture planes, and contrasting color pallets conjuror the specters of bubble-gum pop, nightlife, and war. Each canvas struggles to contain the frenetic composition of eyes, chins, teeth, and noses. Each sculpture reconfigures the viewer’s scale and leaves us gazing through dense assemblages across the gallery floor. Scharf’s mastery of play, proportion, and intuitive mark-making is on full display.
