Art News: ‘Pretty On the Inside’ Exhibit at Paul Kasmin Gallery

11 Aug

Pretty on the Inside, organized by Erik Parker and KAWS, is the first time that the two artists have collaborated to organize an exhibition. Pretty on the Inside which is currently on show at the Paul Kasmin Gallery, includes works in a range of media by seven American artists: Todd James, KAWS, Tony Matelli, Erik Parker, Joyce Pensato, Peter Saul, and Karl Wirsum.

Eric Parker – Untitled, 2011

At first glance, these artworks challenge the viewer through their visual intensity, but upon closer inspection, they reveal an inner beauty. Many of the artists included make ironic or subversive works, hijacking the language of cartoons and comics to both celebrate and criticize contemporary culture.
