DESCRIPTION

Paul Kasmin Gallery is pleased to present Kolors, an exhibition of new paintings and sculptures by Kenny Scharf, including ten new paintings and three large-scale sculptures, on view at 515 West 27th Street, New York. The paintings, inspired by Color Field masterworks, deceptively present themselves as backdrops for the sculptures. Upon closer inspection, the tonally unified paintings beckon the viewer into vibrant, other-worldly, biomorphic atmospheres composed of a variety of shapes, dimensions and details. The three never-before-seen sculptures revisit the classic icons of Scharf’s repertoire of symbolic imagery developed over thirty years. Scharf’s exhibition possesses a unique energy and exuberance, highlighted by both his monochromatic cosmic paintings and nostalgic sculptures. A fully illustrated catalog, published in collaboration with Standard Press and Damiani, will accompany the exhibition.

Two weeks prior to the opening of Kolors, Scharf's large-scale sculpture Squirtz(2013) will debut outdoors in The Plaza at The Standard, Highline March 15 - April 1, 2013.
