Kenny Scharf: Inner and Outer Space
KENNY SCHARF: INNER AND OUTER SPACE
Leila Heller Gallery: Dubai
March 19 – August 31, 2018
“Leila Heller Gallery is pleased to present the first solo exhibition in the UAE by Kenny Scharf.
His new body of work is a reaction to what he perceives as our ‘increasingly out-of-control situation’, depicted by the melting faces in his paintings. Scharf’s work continues to reflect his inexhaustible optimism and his sense of fun but has always been engaged with profound issues beneath the facade. Ecology, the environment, and capitalist excess have long been central themes. More recently, his paintings reflect his environmental concerns over the petroleum industry.”
