Kenny Scharf "Blue Blood" Exhibition Opens Tomorrow!

TOTAH presents blue blood, an exhibition of new works by Kenny Scharf, opening May 2nd, 2019. This is Scharf’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.

Using a strict palette of three colors—red, blue, and gray, with subtle shades and overlappings thereof—blue blood showcases surrealist landscapes that are playfully ebullient without lacking in emotional depth. Extending Scharf’s inimitable iconography, the paintings in the main gallery are replete with otherworldly creatures, equally parodic and pop. What distinguishes blue blood, however, is the way these painterly compositions seem to physicalize abstract notions—futuristic planets, personified nebulae, and risible vortices transmogrify into alluring visages and patterns. - TOTAH

See you there!
