This last Saturday at Honor Fraser gallery, Kenny Scharf presented his latest solo exhibition “Born Again,” consisting of a diverse show of work from repurposed thrift store paintings and early videos. Known for his graffiti and imaginative, colorful characters and imagery, the show centered on themes of pollution-induced anxiety and environmental erosion. Other work at the exhibit along with the co-opted found paintings included several video installations presented salon-style, complete with ’70s-era furniture, TV sets, and makeshift bongs - each space littered with ashtrays.
The show will be on display from now until April 4, 2015, at Honor Fraser.
Watch our “In the Studio” visit with Kenny Scharf as he prepared for this show and our upcoming The Hundreds by Kenny Scharf collaboration here.
