When you’ve got a big room, you’ve gotta fill it with big art, amiright? So it seems with Mary Boone’s current exhibit featuring two huge sculptures by pop artist KAWS. The sheer scale of these massive wooden figures immediately brought to mind Paul McCarthy’s recent White Snow exhibit at Hauser & Wirth.
Well, you can see by the human persons who would not get out of the way of my shots that both of these imposing sculptures, which depict KAWS’ familiar figure known as Companion, stand at over eighteen feet tall and almost reach the gallery roof! Fun!
In the gallery’s much smaller rear room you can see three new paintings by KAWS, which are highly recognizable as following the artist’s signature style. I love the bold colors and round canvases he used for these paintings!
This is a fun show!
New Works By KAWS will be on Exhibit at The Mary Boone Gallery, Located at 541 West 24 Street, in the Chelsea Gallery District, through December 21st, 2013.
