With the general public opening of the closely expected exhibition from KAWS set for day after today in NYC, here’s a first have a look at what’s going to be on show at Skarstedt Gallery. GONE options new abstracted artwork that at this level most effective subtly references the XX and iconic cartoonish characters that used to determine so prominently within the Brookyn-based artist’s paintings. These vibrantly coloured compositions are paired effectively with four new large-scale bronze sculptures starting from the acquainted (like his Chum), to items that reposition a few of his iconic characters like a smaller Companion sitting on a pedestal, or the spotlight of the display – a Companion and BFF posed in some way that harkens again to Michelangelo’s Pietà, even though he has said that that wasn’t his preliminary aim.
